Doing a PhD at the Philosophy Department
The philosophy department offers an excellent combination of practical and theoretical philosophy, a colloquial and constructive research atmosphere, and numerous opportunities for interdisciplinary and international collaborations. An ideal environment for embarking on a PhD project. Interested? There are two ways to join us as a PhD student:
