What do we really know? Does the world really work the way we think it does? In what does just differ from unjust? 

During your Bachelor of Philosophy study, you will learn to inquire into reality by asking fundamental questions on topical themes. You will develop a critical perspective on science, religion, and society. During the Bachelor of Philosophy programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you will study relevant social issues from a theoretical, historical, and practical philosophical perspective. Together with fellow students, you will learn to condense complex problems to the core issues. You will hone your understanding and practise fashioning reasoned arguments, preparing you to contribute to solving problems facing today's society.

You can follow the Bachelor of Philosophy in either English or Dutch. If this is your second study programme, you can opt for the abbreviated version.
