Decisions in society have important knowledge-related and ethical dimensions. They affect people's obligations, rights and liberties. Read more
Decisions in society have important knowledge-related and ethical dimensions. They affect people's obligations, rights and liberties. At the same time, they are often based on scientific findings. Studying reliable and responsible decision-making requires philosophical reflection from various perspectives: we have to reason about human rationality, morality, political institutions and the science/society interface.

The program adopts an interdisciplinary angle where cutting-edge philosophical research is inspired by findings from psychology, economics and cognitive science. Upon graduating, you will be an expert on ethical and epistemic aspects of social decision-making and you will be able to demonstrate how philosophical analysis contributes to solving societal challenges.

Moreover, the Tilburg University MA specialization in Philosophy, Science and Society offers you:
•Teaching by international and experienced faculty members. The lecturers in the Philosophy, Science and Society MA specialization have a strong international teaching record, including countries such as Belgium, Germany, Italy, the United States, and the United Kingdom. There are also guest lecturers from Australia, Canada and the US.
•At the forefront of international research. Your teachers are also internationally leading researchers. The Tilburg Center for Logic, General Ethics and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS), the philosophy department's research platform, regularly organizes international conferences, workshops and seminars that you are invited to attend free of charge.
•Research-Based Learning. Our MA program is in the forefront of current trends and reflects the commitment to include the most recent state-of-the-art approaches and developments in the field of philosophy. From the first day of your stay in Tilburg, you will be confronted with the latest philosophical research, and you will assist your teachers in developing and testing new research results.
•Innovative Methods. The program combines traditional philosophical methods (conceptual analysis, dialectical reasoning, case studies, thought experiments) with recently developed approaches, such as experimental philosophy, simulations and abstract modeling of philosophical problems.
•A Broad Range of Scholarships. There are several attractive scholarships to which you can apply, awarded at university, school or department level. They are open for European and non-European students alike.

Career Perspective Philosophy, Science and Society

Still think that a philosophy degree is not attractive to employers? That it is not your best career choice? Then have a look at these articles from major newspapers and magazines:
•The Atlantic: “Is Philosophy the Most Practical Major?”
•Huffington Post: “The Unexpected Way Philosophy Majors Are Changing The World Of Business”
•The Guardian: “What can you do with a degree of philosophy?”
•The Guardian: “I think, therefore I earn. The rise in stock of philosophy graduates”

True, a philosophy MA is not a Master of Business Administration. But it is a much better career choice than the cliché pretends. You acquire reasoning, analysis and argumentation skills that can be used in various fields and are highly valued by most employers. You are also trained in clear and persuasive writing, creative thinking and devising original solutions to hard problems. This gives you great flexibility in your job choice.

In addition, the Philosophy, Science and Society specialization makes you a genuine expert on human cognition, social decision-making and the interplay between science and society. This involves hot topics such as the ethics of science, risk assessment and the legitimacy of technocratic decision-making. This expertise is sought for in government agencies, research institutes and the private sector. Companies may be especially interested in your expertise in moral reasoning and the impact of moral factors on decision-making.
After graduating, you can also continue your career as an academic researcher who has already acquired an interdisciplinary background and who can apply for PhD positions in various fields.

An important objective is to provide relevant analytical training to familiarise participants with the latest strategic, managerial and industrial developments in both the public and private sectors.

The course provides a coherent analytical framework for the study of business and enterprise from a management perspective. The emphasis throughout the programme is on the application of contemporary, financial, managerial and strategic developments that affect real-world decision-making in the global market place.

We offer a wide selection of modules spanning process engineering, information systems, business and management. All taught modules are delivered by qualified experts in the topics and academic staff, assisted by specialist external lecturers.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

This programme is studied full-time over one academic year. Part-time students must study at least two taught technical modules per academic year. The programme consists of eight taught modules and a dissertation. The following modules are indicative, reflecting the information available at the time of publication. Please note that not all modules described are compulsory and may be subject to teaching availability and/or student demand.
-Information Security Management

FACILITIES, EQUIPMENT AND ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Modules related to the different groups are taught by a total of six full-time members of staff and a number of visiting lecturers.

An extensive library is available for individual study. It stocks more than 85,000 printed books and e-books, and more than 1,400 (1,100 online) journal titles, all in the broad area of engineering. The library support can be extended further through inter-library loans.

As part of their learning experience, students have at their disposal a wide range of relevant software needed to support the programme material dissertation projects.

In recent years, this work included the design of various knowledge-based and business systems on the internet, the application of optimisation algorithms, and semantic web applications, as well as modelling of process systems.

Numerous laboratory facilities across the Faculty and the University are also available for those opting for technology-based projects, such as the process engineering facility, a control and robotics facility and signal processing labs.

The work related to the MSc dissertation can often be carried out in parallel with, and in support of, on-going research. In the past, several graduates have carried on their MSc research to a PhD programme.

RESEARCH

Process integration and systems analysis for sustainability of resources and energy efficiency are carried out within our well-established Centre for Process and Information Systems Engineering (PRISE).

CAREER PROSPECTS

Engineers and scientists are increasingly expected to have skills in information systems engineering and decision support systems alongside their main technical and/or scientific expertise.

Graduates of these programmes will be well prepared to help technology-intensive organisations make important decisions in respect of vast amounts of information, by adopting, combining, implementing and executing the right technologies.

EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF THE PROGRAMME

The primary aims are achieved through a balanced, multi-disciplinary curriculum with a core of information systems engineering modules and decision-making and process systems engineering modules as well as a flexible element by way of elective modules that permit students to pursue an element of specialisation relevant to their backgrounds, interests and/or career aspirations.

An integrated approach is taken so as to provide a coherent view that explores the interrelationships between the various components of the programme.

The programme draws on the stimulus of recent research activities in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences. The programme provides the students with the basis for developing their own approach to learning and personal development.
