Philosophy (Bachelor)


Extended main subject and main subject:

Studying philosophy is an analytical and rigorous discipline with a strong historical element. Students acquire a fundamental understanding both in the field of theoretical philosophy (logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, metaphysics and anthropology) and its history, as well as in practical philosophy (theoretical and applied ethics, decision theory, action theory, political philosophy and the philosophy of law) and its history. The study of philosophy also teaches key transferable skills such as information searching and retrieval, text interpretation, communicating specialist or technical content and, above all, presenting clear, well-formulated analytical arguments.

The Bachelor’s programme in philosophy seeks to emphasize certain topics within the two main fields. Within the field of theoretical philosophy it aims to encourage students to develop a considered approach to language and scientific methodology. In the field of practical philosophy, the aim is to establish a solid grounding in the various systems within theoretical ethics thus enabling students to undertake a rational analysis of moral issues of practical relevance. Human nature, the essence of space and time and the concept of reason are further topics that are illuminated from a variety of perspectives.
 
By no later than the end of the first year of study, students are expected to provide evidence of adequate proficiency in English (level B2 of the Common European Framework). Courses are taught in both German and English.
