The master's programme in Modern European Philosophy at Leiden University focuses on the philosophical reflection on human nature and culture, both from a systematic and a historical perspective.

As the oldest university in the Netherlands, Leiden University has always maintained an active interest in the study of philosophy in all its facets. The master’s programme in Modern European Philosophy spans the whole gamut of modern post-Kantian philosophy.

Taught by Leiden University's internationally-acclaimed faculty, the programme investigates the basis of our understanding of human nature and culture. You will be taught to think philosophically about what it means to live in a human world. The programme combines systematic with historical approaches.

This challenging programme attracts talented and highly-motivated students. In-class discussions with fellow students will help you develop analytical and communicative skills. Classes are kept deliberately small to allow for a high level of contact between students and lecturers, many of whom are leading researchers in their fields.
