Be bold. Follow your passion for philosophy. The sky’s the limit.
Do you think life’s great mysteries are beyond our understanding? Well, philosophy has been answering them for at least two millennia! What is the meaning of life? What is justice? Truth? Beauty? How should we see humanity and its relationship to nature, animals, technology, history, or knowledge? Our programs let you discover the great traditions and contemporary trends in both Western and Asian philosophy. You’ll explore key figures in the history of philosophy and take part in some contemporary society’s most heated debates. The department also offers two new programs that allow you to study the issues that drive political actors, societies, and activists alike: Ethics and Political Philosophy, and Political Science and Philosophy.
