Philosophy and Computer Science, Master of Science (M.Sc.) / Master of Arts (M.A.)

The challenges posed to our society by new digital technologies like Artificial intelligence (AI), social media, and big data call for solutions that combine technological and philosophical expertise. Our Master’s programme Philosophy & Computer Science (P&CS) at the University of Bayreuth (subject to the approval of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts) aims at training a new generation of scientists and creative thinkers with all the necessary skills to navigate the social, epistemological, ethical, and institutional challenges of ever-more pervasive modern information technologies.

Modern society is rapidly changing and increasingly digital. As such, it faces many unforeseen challenges in research, business, and politics. Our vision for this new programme is to empower graduates to navigate these challenges by providing them with a unique set of skills that will make them expert problem-solvers and tech innovators.
