Job opportunities

The Master’s Degree in Contemporary Philosophical Thought allows the access to the Third Cycle of Philosophy Studies. On the other hand, it improves the expectations of professional promotion in non-philosophic fields like cultural management, editorial management, journalism, communication, cultural critics and intellectual advice. It also enriches the training of students whose professional projection is related to research, specially in human and social sciences. Likewise, it improves the training for the access to teaching in Philosophy training and similar subjects to different levels.
