Master in Philosophy

The Master in Philosophy at USI differs from many other philosophy programs:

  • It offers courses in contemporary analytic philosophy and in the history of philosophy, ancient and medieval, which are designed to complement each other.
  • Its focus is on theoretical philosophy and its history - especially on metaphysics and the philosophy of mind.
  • It has a strong thematic unity; the topic of the 2018/2020 Master is time and existence. 
  • It requires students to submit regular written work, to produce research papers and to develop their discussion skills in class.

This full-time study program comprises 120 ECTS spread over 4 semesters (usual duration 2 years). All philosophy courses are in English. It is possible for students to earn their degree by taking courses in English only.
