Are you fascinated by the political, technological, cultural, and ecological challenges that dominate the headlines? Do you want to study the concepts and ideas behind those challenges? Are you interested in how our thinking about the world helps shape the world? If you want to help build the ideas that determine the course of humanity, then Philosophy, Politics and Society might be the perfect fit for you.
PPS is a uniquely issue-oriented philosophy programme. The curriculum is organised around themes such as ecological crises, scientific progress, the future of technology, identity politics, or the global political landscape.
The first year of the PPS bachelor consists of introductory courses that familiarize you with the fundamental concepts, methods, and problems of philosophy. This prepares you for the second and third year of PPS, which is unique in its issue-oriented approach. You choose up to six thematic modules that focus on the philosophical analysis of major societal challenges.
These modules cover topics such as the future of democracy, digital technology, global justice and human rights, and the advent of the Anthropocene.
