Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will be capable of identifying traditional and current knowlege in the area of Logic and Philosophy of Science as well as its different currents of thought and traditions. They will also have a solid understanding of the controversies between different alternatives and will be able to judge which has the best justification by identifying arguments and evaluating their accuracy, plausibility, believability, and acceptance. Finally, graduates will have a mastery of the analytical instruments used in Philosophy, which allow them to determine the semantic, logical, epistemological, methodological, ontological, axiological, and ethical factors present in science and technology.

Competences

Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
