Honours Programme in Philosophy

This programme contains a broad and in-depth introduction on the main areas of Western philosophy, the philosophical aspects of the own field of science and includes a small part of the broadening part of the BA Honours Programme. The Honours Programme in Philosophy comprises a total of 45 ECTS.

This Honours Programme is an interesting option for students interested in learning about philosophy and the philosophy of their field from a broad academic and social perspective. Students must choose between applying for the regular Bachelor's Honours Programme or for the Honours Programme in Philosophy.
