Entry requirements

Completed Theoretical Philosophy - Master Course (one-year) with 30 HE credits approved, or the equivalent. In addition to the above, documented knowledge in Swedish and English is required, equivalent to the general entry requirements for first-cycle studies.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should have:
- advanced knowledge of some central problems and theories of theoretical philosophy,
- broadened understanding of an additional field of philosophy,
- developed the ability to independently handle, produce and assess complex argumentation,
- the ability to carry out a fairly extensive research assignment independently.

Course content

The course comprises 30 HE credits. In several of the courses, the teaching may take place at another higher education institution or in the form of distance education (see above, regarding the national cooperation).

Seminar, 7.5 HE credits
The seminar, which is compulsory, may present current research or bring up a central and current complex problem.

Individually selected course, 7.5 HE credits
In consultation with the supervisor, a course that in an appropriate way supplements the courses that were completed in Theoretical Philosophy, advanced course is chosen. The supply of such courses may vary from semester to semester.

Thesis, 15 HE credits
The student should carry out an independent research assignment

Teaching and working methods

Independent literature studies to which compulsory seminars, compulsory written assignments, oral presentations and a written examination will be added. In addition to this, other types of teaching and working methods may occur. Part of the teaching may take place at another higher education institution, and elements of distance education occur.

Examination

The course is examined through compulsory seminars, written assignments, written examination and oral presentations. Active individual oral participation in the seminars is required to pass the course. The master's thesis should be defended at a final review.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.

Grades

Three-grade scale, U, G, VG

Other information

Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus. 

The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
