2 years in Madrid + 2 years in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
For almost two centuries, Saint Louis University has promoted philosophical thinking in the Jesuit-Catholic tradition. The Philosophy Department is characterized by a pluralism of methodologies and interests, with faculty bringing various versions of analytic philosophy, pragmatism, critical theory, continental philosophy, and Thomism to bear on a wide range of topical areas: philosophy of religion, philosophy of science, philosophical anthropology, epistemology, logic, metaphysics, ethics, social and political philosophy, aesthetics, and various interdisciplinary areas. Despite this diversity, the department is unified in the value it places on the history of philosophy by ensuring that the four historical periods of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary are well covered by faculty in regular course offerings.
The Madrid Campus offers a full range of courses in philosophy, including courses on Spanish philosophy, medical ethics, business ethics, the meaning of life, and Latin American philosophy. Students wishing to complete a degree in philosophy may complete the first two years of study in Madrid before transferring to the campus in St. Louis, Missouri in the US to complete the final two years of study.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
