     The APhil Master is an inter-university programme run by several
     Catalan universities and co-ordinated from the University of
     Barcelona. There are two itineraries, with a focus in practical and
     theoretical philosophy respectively. On each itinerary, students
     have to take a range of compulsory and optional modules as well as
     write a research paper under the supervision of one of our faculty.

     The master programme can now be taken entirely in English.

     Students enjoy all the benefits of being members of a lively
     postgraduate community, strong links to several active research
     groups, and our international faculty.

     There are some opportunities for funding available, including PERSP
     predocs or grants from the ministries of education and of science
     and innovation.
