Study in a bachelor study programme is a three-year credit single subject study programme in the study field of philosophy.

 

Primary admission prerequisite of a three-year bachelor study programme (level “Bc.”) is the completion of full secondary education or full secondary
vocational education. Other admission prerequisite is a successful
completion of admission procedures.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:

Scope and depth of graduates' knowledge lay ground for their further study in
the field of study (2nd degree - Mgr.), eventually for study of 2nd
degree (Mgr.) of related fields of study, if their respective study
programmes allow that. The graduates are also prepared for professions
in governmental and non-governmental institutions, in third sector
organisations, in publishing houses, on editorial boards, in media. 

Access to further studies:

Bachelor study programme graduates can continue in a two-year master study
programme in the field of PHILOSOPHY and be conferred a level “Mgr”. 

 

 

The graduate of the single bachelor study field PHILOSOPHY has knowledge corresponding to basic issues of philosophy covering individual areas of philosophic thinking, mainly in the area of basic philosophic subjects. The bachelor's study graduate is able to, in particular:
- be well informed in main philosophic systems, schools, trends,
streams, issues and personalities in the history of philosophy, from
ancient times to the present times;
- to know basic conceptual and categorical apparatus of philosophy;
- to specify a particular issue and formulate it as a philosopher;
- to introduce and explain elementary procedures and approaches of
theoretical issues (logic, methodology of science) that are used by
default;
- to adapt and apply these solutions in specific practical conditions of
the problem;
- to formulate and analyse issues independently and to assess their
possible solutions critically

 

 

Master: 

Specific admission requirements:

Primary admission prerequisite of a two-year master study programme (level “Mgr.”) is the completion of bachelor study. Applications of graduates of a study programme Philosophy or History of Philosophy, Psychology, Informatics and related fields are accepted. Owing to markedly interdisciplinary character of cognitive science, the study is also open for bachelor study graduates from other fields dealing with natural history, social science and technology. Other admission prerequisite is a successful completion of admission procedures.

 

Key learning outcomes:

Graduates of a single subject master study of the field Philosophy acquire highly-complex education relying on the latest knowledge from the field of philosophy and specialised knowledge from specific fields of cognitive sciences in the programme Cognitive Studies.
A Master Study Graduate especially:
- acquired more complex and profound knowledge of term and categorical apparatus of philosophy mainly in the field of solving of cognitive science issues
- acquired more detailed and profound knowledge from the field of systematic philosophy which he/she attains through a deeper critical analysis and comparison of concepts of individual philosophical systems and science theories
- acquired more profound and developed knowledge from individual spheres of contemporary philosophical thinking oriented on cognitive science and as well is well-informed about procedures and methods of solution of theoretical problems in these spheres
- can work with sources individually and interpret and analyse philosophical and cognitive science texts
- can work individually, professionally and scientifically in the field of philosophy of cognitive sciences
- can identify and critically reflect current social and practical problems and search for possibilities of their solution 

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:

The two-year Master Study Programme Graduates can Find their Employment: in the study of philosophy in the 3th degree – PhD study in the fields: systematic philosophy or history of philosophy (or logic and science methodology), can teach philosophy or work at workplaces in the field of humanistic sciences in Slovakia (workplaces of academic character), in governmental and non-governmental humanistic institutions (cultural and social institutions, foundations, citizens´ associations), institutions dealing with empirical identification of a state of society, editorial offices of professional and social magazines, publishing houses of professional (social science) literature, media ...

TRUNI runs bachelor's and master's degree programmes that can be realized individually at one or more faculties, possibly at more faculties as an interfaculty study. Fulfilment of the requirements of studies in a programme (henceforth "studies") is recorded through a credit system based on the principles of the European Credit Transfer System (henceforth "ECTS"). 

 

 

Master of Cognitive Studies

 

The MA programme Cognitive Studies offers 4 semester (2 years) of study of the main topics of CogSci (Perception theory, Game Theory, Cognitive linguistics, the Philosophy of the mind, Cognitive neuroscience, Methodology of sciences, Theory of information, Rationality and cognition, the Philosophy of evolution,…) in English with the possibility of spending some time in partner institutions. Students will gain general knowledge and an orientation in the subject which will allow them to specialise as creative researchers in cognitive science and apply modern scientific methods, concepts, as well as programming skills in empirical research fields such as: psychology, philosophy, neuroscience and linguistics; to work effectively as individuals, as members or head of a team, including multidisciplinary research and development teams. The study of our programme leads to an MA diploma (Cognitive Studies in Philosophy) and opens the possibility of studying a PhD. in cognitive science (or in related disciplines, e.g. Systematic Philosophy at the Faculty), or in related fields (e.g. psychology, neuroscience, linguistics) at other faculties in Slovakia and abroad; to teach at institutions of higher education in cognitive science related disciplines or to find job in various areas.
