Discover the Faculty of Philosophy

Widely regarded as one of the best universities to study philosophy in Europe, and with our master's programmes fully taught in English, the faculty offers two bachelor programmes and multiple master's programmes, which includes the selective one-year MSc in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) as well as a selective two-year Research Master in philosophy.

Our degree programmes have consistently been ranked high in the top in the Netherlands and are home to around 450 students every year. Research areas include philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, ethics, political philosophy, and the history of philosophy.

Located in the historical centre of Groningen, the faculty is an internationally oriented community of researchers and teachers that welcomes students from all over the world to broaden and deepen their knowledge, and sharpen their skills in an inspiring, friendly and collegial setting.

The highest distinction in Dutch Academia, the Spinoza Prize, has been awarded to Professor of Ethics and its History, Pauline Kleingeld in 2020, and to Professor of History of Philosophy, Lodi Nauta in 2016. On 23 February 2023, the Dean of the Faculty and Professor of Political Philosophy, Lisa Herzog, was awarded a Vici grant by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). All these professors are conducting research and teaching at the faculty.
