About Philosophy of a Specific Discipline at University of Groningen

Do you study psychology, physics, history, or… and are you interested in philosophical questions concerning your discipline? This master's degree programme broadens and enriches your knowledge!

You transcend your own discipline by acquiring knowledge of philosophy in relation to it. In this two-year master's programme (120 EC), you combine your own master's programme (60 EC) with a philosophy programme (60 EC).

The programme involves a compulsory course in the philosophy of science in which you reflect on the development of scientific theories. In addition, you select three philosophy courses with a connection to your own field, and follow two 'tutorials': courses consisting of seminars only in which you acquire in-depth knowledge of subjects that interest you.

In some cases, you can partly determine the content yourself. You also follow colloquia: lectures relevant to your area of specialization, on which you write reports that translate the scientific context to philosophical or public ones. You finish your master by writing a philosophical thesis on a subject relating to your own discipline. By these means you learn how to think philosophically about your field.
