Courses for Exchange students at the Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy each semester offers at a minimum two courses taught in English at undergraduate level. At postgraduate level we offer the entire masters program in Philosophy in English.

Each course is assigned a three-digit number, where the first digit is either 1 (100-level courses), 2 (200-level courses) or 3 (300-level courses). 100-level courses are beginner's courses. 200-level courses involve some specialisation, while 300-level courses involve a higher level of specialisation. Normally, 100-level courses may only be included at bachelor's level, while 200-level courses may be included at both bachelor's and master's level. 100-level courses and 200-level courses are listed as undergraduate courses. As a rule, 300-level courses may only be incorporated into master's programmes and are listed as postgraduate courses.
