Current MA Students about the programme:
Wei Jun Shu
This is the first time I left Asia to study, and the reason why I chose the Philosophy Now master's programme of the EUR is because of the professional teachers, diverse courses, and international education environment. Here, we can communicate with students from various countries and stimulate more ideas. Secondly, this master is divided into four clusters, which allows me being able to focus more on the areas of my interest and strengthen my major. Besides, Rotterdam is a really nice city with a good quality of life and convenience, where you can easily get all your daily needs, while also discovering and enjoying much natural beauty around the city. Studying at Erasmus provides me with a chance to not only put what I learned in my undergraduate studies into practice, but also expand my perspectives and enable me to analyze each situation from different angles to achieve mastery in all I have learned. I strongly believe that after this one-year Philosophy Now programme, we can connect to the workplace more smoothly and use our profession better.
Jeltje van der Haer:
After completing my bachelor's in philosophy at the Erasmus University, I decided to continue my studies in the Philosophy Now master's programme of the EUR. I chose this master because it focuses on philosophical debates that engage with our society. When choosing a master programme, I found it important that I could focus on areas of philosophy that I found the most interesting and relevant for my future career. Philosophy Now offers a personalized but coherent curriculum, by dividing the courses into four clusters, out of which students can choose the two clusters that appeal to them most. Because of the small-scaled education and dedicated teachers, this programme provides me with a learning environment in which I feel motivated to share and develop new ideas and insights.
