Course goals
The purpose of a tutorial is to provide the opportunity for in-depth study within one of the specialized areas of philosophical research in which the philosophy staff is engaged. Students also gain experience co-leading tutorial discussions. Students also produce a research paper that often can function as a pre-study for their thesis.  
Tutorials are organized on a range of specialized topics, which change from year to year on the basis of current research activity research staff in philosophy and the research interests of students.  In regular sessions, a small group of students meet with the tutorial leader to discuss research problems and challenges on a topic in the instructor's field of expertise. Using close readings and short presentations regarding a substantial reading list of philosophical texts, a tutorial provides a thorough introduction to the current praxis of research in a particular subject. The tutorial concludes with a final research paper on a topic covered in the tutorial.
Tutorial offerings for each semester are determined in the weeks prior to registration.  Most tutorials are scheduled for block 1 or 4. Details are specified at the start of the tutorial and written up in a ‚ÄúTutorial protocol," which is available in the RMA Philosophy Handbook.
Students in History and Philosophy of Science who are interested in enrolling in or organizing a tutorial (which can be for 7,5 EC) should contact the HPS programme coordinator prior to the enrollment period for the relevant semester.

Interested M.A. exchange students with a strong background in philosophy may qualify to take the course; however, they should first contact the RMA Philosophy coordinator:
