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.

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?

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.

For each theme, you will examine a combination of key historical philosophical texts, contemporary thinkers, and empirical cases.
PPS explores the defining issues of the 21st century from a rich variety of theoretical perspectives, without the narrow economic focus of traditional PPE ('Philosophy, Politics, and Economics') programmes.
Your first year consists of a series of systematic introductory courses. In your second and third years, you tailor your curriculum to those global issues in which you are most interested.
PPS cooperates with other faculties such as Law, Management, Social Science or the Science Faculty.
PPS gives you the opportunity to spend a semester studying abroad at a university of your choice.
