Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Lucerne offers wide-ranging bachelor’s and master’s study programmes in philosophy. Students can choose from a broad range of courses in practical philosophy (political and social philosophy), theoretical philosophy (the philosophy of mind and language) and the history of philosophy. Why not take a look at our current timetable? We place great importance on intensive supervision of our students, and a mentoring scheme is in place to ensure that they receive support from the very start of their studies. The department arranges lectures by nationally and internationally acclaimed philosophers, along with conferences and workshops. We also promote innovative teaching methods and arrange additional events on future careers for philosophy students. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing your questions about philosophy!
