Overview of Our Study Courses

 

Bachelor

One special feature of the Munich School of Philosophy is the highly structured course in the subject philosophy, particularly in the undergraduate studies. The condensed introduction to the wide range of philosophical disciplines and periods has become our trademark. The academic qualification is a “Bachelor of Arts” (B.A.) in philosophy. The Bachelor can be started in either the summer or the winter semester and is recognized at both a state and a church level. The study course has been accredited since April 2014.

 

Master

The Master builds upon the broad education provided in the Bachelor and enables an in-depth scientific education in one of three philosophical focuses of the Munich School of Philosophy: "Mind and Nature", "Religion and Reason" or "Ethics and Society".
The program is aimed at all interested parties who wish to obtain analytical, logical and reasoning skills for their future career path or for an academic career in philosophy or in interdisciplinary research contexts. The Master can be started every winter semester and concludes with a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Philosophy, which is recognized by both the state and the church. The study course has been accredited since April 2014.

 

 

Apart from these fundamental study courses, the Munich School of Philosophy offers additional (further education) certificates and courses.

Further education Master of Ethics

The further education Master of Ethics conveys the skills necessary to properly analyze topical social issues and reflect in an ethically sound manner in order to reach reasoned judgements on this basis that can be effective in practice.
This course of study is aimed at all interested parties who have a primary university degree. The Master can be started every winter semester and concludes with a Master of Arts (M.A. in Ethics) which is recognized by the state. The study course has been accredited since April 2014.

 

Further education Master of Intercultural Education

The further education Master of Intercultural Education is intended to enable students to understand the phenomenon of interculturality as an educational principle through philosophical reflection and apply it within the specific professional context. The main focuses of adult education, international understanding and spiritual care offer opportunities for in-depth approaches, depending on a student’s particular interests, and can also be covered individually as two- to three-semester module study courses.

 

Further education certificates

At the Munich School of Philosophy, in addition to the fundamental philosophical study courses, so-called supplementary study courses can be taken which illuminate additional perspectives on philosophical thinking from different angles.
A special feature of all of these supplementary qualifications is the dedicated philosophical perspective, which also sheds light on the individual questions. The further education certificates are designed to allow transition to a further education Master.

 

PhD

Doctoral and post-doctoral degrees can be completed at the Munich School of Philosophy. Doctoral and post-doctoral degrees place very high requirements on a student’s academic capabilities and enable intensive, self-determined analysis of an academic topic chosen by the student.
The Munich School of Philosophy offers doctoral and post-doctoral students intensive support and the opportunity to actively participate in teaching and research, as well as contacts in society and the academic sphere.
