Organisation of training



Teachings are organised in body of knowledge that allows students to acquire the expected skills progressively all over the semesters, spanning history of philosophy (ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary) as well as logic, philosophy of mind, cognitive science, theory of knowledge, metaphysics, phenomenology, hermeneutics, philosophical anthropology, ethics, aesthetics, political philosophy, philosophy of literature.

 

Year 1 of the LILIPHIL Master, in Lisbon, consists of:

Active participation in 6 seminars (3 per semester, 3h/week each) chosen according to the student’s interest on the basis of the available offer, and 2 English courses during first and second semester, which can be exchanged for optional seminars on the basis of the available offer.

 

Year 2 of the LILIPHIL Master, in Lille, is divided into two parts:

Active participation in 5 seminars (divided by the 2 semesters, 2h/week each) chosen according to the student’s interests on the basis of the available offer; conception and writing under the co-direction of two supervisors, one for each University, of a thesis (75 pages minimum) defended in English at the end of the year before a French-Portuguese jury, at the University of Lille or at the University of Lisbon, or by videoconference.

 

Throughout the Master Programme, in Lisbon and in Lille, students will have access to library and sports facilities of the host Universities.

 

Evaluation

 

Evaluation of semesters one and two is carried out at the University of Lisbon; evaluation of semesters three and four is carried out at the University of Lille.

 

Thesis

 

The subject of the master's thesis is chosen by the student in agreement with the two supervisors concerned. The thesis work is part of the research training and requires a significant personal investment as well as regular exchanges with the thesis supervisors.

 

Language Training (Other than in English)

 

Students will be also able to benefit in each of the two Universities, on an optional basis, from language training in the language of the country where the training is given.

 

Study Plan

 

To have an idea of the courses dispensed throughout the two years of the LILIPHIL Master Program, please see the current master’s programs at both Universities, available on the respective departments’ websites (see “Useful links”).
