In the Philosophy of the Humanities and the Social Sciences programme, students gain philosophical insights in conjunction with another academic discipline. In the Philosophy of the Humanities and the Social Sciences programme, you will study philosophy for two years in conjunction with another field of study. There are two specialisations:

• philosophy of the social sciences

• philosophy of the humanities

In the first specialisation, you will learn to look philosophically at subjects such as sociology, political science, anthropology, economics or public administration. In the specialisation Philosophy of the Humanities, you will study philosophy in conjunction with disciplines such as history, literary studies, art history, etcetera.

You can enrol in the Master’s programme Philosophy of the Humanities and the Social Sciences if you have completed a Bachelor’s programme in one of the social sciences or the humanities, including a minor in Philosophy (such as the minor Praktische filosofie at the UvA) and a Philosophy of Science course. Students with a Bachelor’s in Philosophy may also enter the programme, as long as their degree enables them access to a Master’s in the social sciences or humanities. In most cases, this will mean that they must have done a minor or pre-Master’s programme.
