Welcome to the Department of Philosophy
We are a lively, versatile institute that offers various study options and brings together diverse, overlapping research foci.
Here you can study a double major in Applied Philosophy, Philosophy/Practical Philosophy (GyGe) or Practical Philosophy (HRSGe) at Bachelor level. At Master's level, we offer the double major in Philosophy as well as the degree programmes MEd Philosophy/Practical Philosophy (GyGe) and Practical Philosophy (HRSGe). Finally, in conjunction with the Department of Sociology, we will offer the interdisciplinary MA Theory of the Social.
The basic structure of the Department includes two Professorships for Theoretical Philosophy, two Professorships for Practical Philosophy and one Professorship responsible for disciplines where the Theoretical and the Practical meet. In addition, three associate professors work here, covering further areas of practical philosophy, as well as philosophical didactics. As a result, we can offer an exceptionally comprehensive expertise in practical philosophy that integrates the Action Theory, Metaethics, Normative Ethics, Political Philosophy and Applied Ethics.
