Study Philosophy at HHU

The Philosophy Program at HHU is offered with the degrees Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts. While in the Bachelor Study Program a major subject is combined with a minor subject, the Master Study Program is a single-subject Program, in which a specialization in either Theoretical or Practical Philosophy is possible. Philosophy can be studied with the Bachelor degree as a major or a minor subject. In both cases, students may enroll for a Master Study Program after successful graduation.

The Bachelor Study Program is offered as a two-subject program. The language of study is German. The main subject is combined with a freely selectable minor subject to allow for an individual focus. In addition, there is an obligatory interdisciplinary elective. The standard period of study is 3 academic years (6 semesters). Philosophy can be studied as a major subject or as a minor subject. Both options can qualify for the Master Study Program.

The Master's programme in Philosophy offers an opportunity to deepen the methodological, systematic and historical knowledge acquired in a Bachelor's programme. The language of study is German. At our Department of Philosophy, you can pursue your own specialist interests in a targeted manner in an internationally oriented environment at the height of the current state of research.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities awards the academic degree Doctor of Philosophy (Dr. phil.). In addition to individually supervised doctoral projects, you can benefit from a wide range of workshops and advisory services through the Graduate Academy philGrad.
