The program covers most of the major areas of philosophy, from a mainly analytic perspective. Courses related to the major periods in the history of philosophy are also taught. Candidates who have a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree can take the Master’s degree in one year.
The PhD program in philosophy is organized primarily around the following areas of specialization:
- Moral and Political Philosophy
- Metaphysics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Human Nature
- History of Philosophy
This BA program both integrates into the European-wide Bologna system and offers the best of the American undergraduate education system. After successful completion of a four-year BA, students will have a European and an American BA degree. At the beginning of the program students receive a solid foundation in all three disciplines, and as they progress through the program, they are offered an increasing amount of choice in terms of orientation and focus.
The four-year BA can pave the way to pursuing a one-year MA for students who choose to specialize further.
