Graduate study

Graduate studies include Master's Degree and Ph.D. Studies, both covered with European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which allows for participants to combine their postgraduate studies in Ljubljana with their study on other universities, or to complete all of their postgraduate studies in Ljubljana. The exchange programs (Socrates-Erasmus, CEEPUS, university exchanges) also enables professors and students from other universities to participate in the graduate program.

Master's Degree is organized as a two-years course (120 ECTS). Course includes three subjects each year - six altogether, with one per year common to all postgraduate students, and two per year programmed according to the final thesis of the student. General Subjects include all disciplines and branches of philosophy. The Masterís Degree course also allows interdisciplinary program where students combine courses on different Faculties. For detailed information do not hesitate to contact Secretariat of the Department of Philosophy. Master's studies conclude with the public defense of the thesis.

Ph.D. studies (180 ECTS) are organized on individual basis according to the project and title of the thesis. Our professors are fluent in English, German, and French, so there should be no problems in communication, while for lectures and other regular postgraduate activities knowledge of Slovenian language is necessary.

The most visible specialty of our Department is the presence of different schools and streams of thought. You will find here those who profess critical theory as well as psychoanalytic theory, those who follow phenomenology and cognitive science, or those who work in feminist studies and those who develop philosophy of culture.
