Continuing master programmes for Bachelor Bachelor in Philosophy of a Specific Discipline
After you have finished your bachelor Philosophy of a Specific Discipline, we highly recommend you to take philosophy to the next level and do an MA in Philosophy. At Erasmus School of Philosophy of the Erasmus University Rotterdam we offer a multitude of courses ranging from subjects such as socio-political philosophy, and philosophy of man, to philosophical skepticism. Even more this programme can be tailored to your interests.
The first two courses in block 1 are mandatory. After block 1 you have the option to choose the two tracks (‘Continental Philosophy and its History’ track, and the ‘Philosophy and Economics’ track) in block 2 and six elective courses in block 3. In block 4 you write your master thesis. But, following these tracks is not required. Many of our students have chosen courses from both tracks, creating an interesting mix of courses of the master’s programme.
Next to our MA Philosophy, Erasmus School of Philosophy also offers a research master in Philosophy and Economics. It is an intensive and internationally recognised two-year programme, open to outstanding students with a bachelor's degree in either Philosophy or Economics. This programme is especially interesting for students who combined a programme at Erasmus School of Economics with the bachelor Philosophy of a Specific Discipline . If you haven’t obtained a degree in Economics, you can still apply for the research master. Applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
The advantages of the research master in Philosophy and Economics are its focus on research and its specialisation on the cross-section between philosophy and economics. The research master is a two-year programme, where students will be trained to contribute to the field of research in philosophy and economics by an inspiring mix of young up-and-coming researchers and leading researchers in the field. However, such specialised and high-quality guidance requires an outstanding and motivated group of students.
