Justification title

The University Interuniversity Master's Degree in Research in Philosophy is an Official Master's Programme that arises from a transformation of the masters in Philosophy offered by the different universities that participate.

The master's degree is unique for the 3 universities. The offer of all subjects will be the same for the 3 universities.

We wanted to design an Interuniversity Programme that allows the number of participating professors and researchers to strengthen the research orientation and national and international competitiveness. We want the union to guarantee leadership in different areas of philosophical knowledge with a sufficient critical mass of teachers and teachers. In fact, by adding the resources of the four universities we have achieved:

  • A faculty that has accredited teaching and research experience, capable of developing the specializations (in the form of specialties) contemplated by the Programme.
  • Research teams that accredit public or private funding in their lines of research and quality scientific production.
  • An interuniversity program that represents a relevant critical mass within the four areas (Ethics, Ethics, Philosophy and Logic) in Philosophy as an institution in Spain.
