Program description

Master's Degree in Analytical Philosophy

The master's degree in Analytic Philosophy is mainly intended for students who want to pursue advanced research in theoretical and practical philosophical considerations from an analytical perspective.

The program is open to students who have not gained sufficient familiarity with the assumptions and methods of analytical philosophy during their undergraduate studies. It is also open to students who have completed undergraduate degrees in disciplines other than philosophy, who will be asked to complete bridging subjects worth up to 30 credits, selected in agreement with their tutor.

The origins of analytical philosophy go back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and the works of authors like Frege, Russell, Moore and Wittgenstein, who wrote on logic, language, ontology, epistemology and ethics. Today, the analytical tradition informs the predominant approach of most universities across the English-speaking world. In Spain, analytical philosophy is a relatively minor tradition at universities and in the media, yet the group of four Catalan universities that offers the master's degree (which uses English as the predominant language of instruction) has been very active in research in recent years, due in part to the ICREA and Ramón y Cajal programs, which have made it possible to attract leading thinkers from international universities.

The languages of instruction for this program are Spanish 5-10%; English 90-95%.

Admission requirements

In accordance with Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/29 October 2007, students must hold one of the following qualifications to access university master's degree courses:

  • An official Spanish degree.
  • A degree issued by a higher education institution within the European Higher Education Area framework that authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue.
  • A qualification from outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area. In this case, the qualification should be recognized as equivalent to an official Spanish degree. If it is not recognized, the University of Barcelona shall verify that it corresponds to a level of education that is equivalent to official Spanish degrees and that it authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue. Admission shall not, in any case, imply that prior qualifications have been recognized as equivalent to a Spanish master's degree and does not confer recognition for any purposes other than that of admission to the master's degree course.

Qualification

The main objective is to train researchers to conduct research of the highest international level in the various areas of analytical philosophy, starting with a doctoral thesis.

Together, the master's degree and the doctoral program in Analytic Philosophy provide complete training for university professors/researchers. The aspiration is to provide training similar to the training given by graduate schools in the United States and the United Kingdom, where students join research groups formed by fellow students and veteran researchers with a wide range of experience. Students collaborate in reading groups, working groups, etc., but also receive individual supervision from experienced academic staff in order to complete their doctoral research.

Career opportunities

Students who are not looking to pursue an academic career will find good opportunities to put their knowledge into practice in public administration and the private sector.
