Overview

Joining the master’s programme in Philosophy at the University of Tartu (ranked in the TOP 200 Departments by QS University Rankings) will enable you to acquire historical and systematic knowledge covering a whole range of philosophical topics. You will learn how to think about fundamental “eternal” questions (e.g. ”What is the nature of things?”; ”How can one live a good life?”; “What is truth?“) as well as how to unravel contemporary issues (from issues pertaining to developments in science and technology to environmental and political concerns). As a master’s student, you will be integrated into one of our (often international) research groups. You will develop valuable skills for an academic career in philosophy, such as critical reading and analysis, academic writing, and preparation for presentations.

Career opportunities

If you want to become a professional producer of knowledge, a researcher, an academic, we have a proven record of placing our students into highly regarded PhD programs.

If you want to become a disseminator of knowledge, for example through journalism, media, or education, our studies will teach you how to carefully process and wisely use the immense amounts of information available nowadays, and how to get learners at any level inspired and excited about the subject you teach.

If you want to become an influencer or a public decision-maker, in our program you will learn how to articulate and defend your own opinions clearly and convincingly, and how to listen and critically engage with the opinions of others.

And if you don’t know yet who you want to become, philosophy might well be the best place for you! The intellectual discipline and the creativity that we practice and encourage in our lectures and seminars will help you evaluate the pros and cons of different career paths, and will make you imagine for yourself future scenarios you might have never considered otherwise.
