The Philosophy and Religious Studies Programme currently has a PhD programme and a minor programme. It is keen on expanding its present scope, promoting high quality teaching and research, and attracting undergraduate and postgraduate students to explore the fascinating realms of truth, wisdom, beauty, values, and beliefs together.


PhD Programme

The PhD programme consists of one to two years of full-time coursework, followed by a year or more of full-time, independent research. The areas of research comprise diverse traditions in philosophy and religion. Qualified students are eligible for a studentship and/or scholarship.

Minor Programme

The Minor Programme in Philosophy is designed to offer students the opportunity to receive rigorous academic training in three major areas of inquiry: the history of philosophy and religion, applied ethics and politics, and theoretical explorations of knowledge, mind and reality. In view of the unique historical legacy of Macao, the programme places a particular emphasis on dialogues between Western and Eastern traditions.
