Students choose one of three specializations: history of philosophy, theoretical philosophy, or ethics, social and political philosophy and will become a member of the research community of the respective department. But the curriculum is flexible and allows you to pursue your own interests.

Groningen's internationally renowned staff have expertise in most areas of philosophy, with particular strengths in early modern philosophy, ethics, metaethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of mind, (formal) epistemology, logic, and the philosophy of science.
