Philosophy

The degree program Philosophy offers a research-oriented environment for students to deepen their knowledge of and specialize in the areas of history of philosophy and contemporary philosophy as well as in theoretical and practical philosophy. Students can develop an individual profile within broad thematic areas ranging from logic and epistemology to metaphysics and philosophy of religion, (applied) ethics, natural and cultural philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of mind and philosophy of language.

Students learn to put their acquired knowledge into the context of current theories and discourses in their fields and to critically question historical positions. Students benefit from a wide diversity and large number of professorships and their interdisciplinary relations, covering the entire spectrum of philosophical teaching and research.

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
