During your study

Master in Philosophy

From theory to practice

During your studies a graduate symposium (mid-June) and workshops (mid-April) on four specializations will be organised:

  1. Innovation in Education
  2. History, Theory, and Approaches in Public Philosophy
  3. Philosophy and Public Policy
  4. Transdisciplinarity and public issues

Teachers: Dr. Tim De Mey, Prof. Dr. Marli Huijer, Prof. Dr. Liesbeth Noordegraaf-Eelens, Dr. Constanze Binder

Students choose one out of the four specializations and use the mentor group (which meets at the end of each block) to work towards an outcome (policy report, public lecture, vlog, …) to be presented to all students at an onsite workshop in block 5 with the participation of specialists from the field.

Philosophical Faculty Association ERA

ERA is the faculty association of Erasmus School of Philosophy. ERA’s ambition is to inspire students on an academic and a personal level. To achieve this, ERA organises interesting pub lectures, cultural activities and study trips. ERA welcomes all philosophy students. As a member of ERA, students will also receive our faculty magazine ‘Twijfel’, with philosophical articles and interviews of, with and by students and academic staff.

Erasmus Student Journal of Philosophy (ESJP)

The Erasmus Student Journal of Philosophy (ESJP) is a double-blind peer-reviewed student journal which gives students of Erasmus School of Philosophy the opportunity to publish their best philosophical papers. Published papers have been nominated by the teacher of the course for which they were written and subjected to double-blind peer review by at least one other teacher and two student editors who act as referees.

The ESJP aims to further enrich the philosophical environment in which Rotterdam’s philosophy students develop their thinking and bring their best work to the attention of a wider intellectual audience. 

Visit the website of the ESJP for more information.
