Curriculum

Bachelor Double Degree with Philosophy

The full curriculum contains 90 European credits (EC). The programme offers a set of core philosophy courses which amounts to 63.75 EC. The remaining 26.25 EC are obtained through a specialised set of courses on the philosophy of your own academic discipline (15 EC) and the thesis (11.25 EC). You can use one of two sets of courses (15 EC) offered in block 1 as a minor for your main programme. It means that you won’t have to take another minor for your main programme.

The main language of the programme is English, but you can answer the exams in Dutch as well. To prevent clashes with lectures and seminars of your main programme, philosophy courses will be scheduled between 18.00 and 21.30 hrs. The optional tutorials are scheduled in the late afternoon.

In the Double Degree with Philosophy programme we do not work with prerequisite courses, thus you are free to take up philosophy courses as they are scheduled. However, we advise you to follow one of the two standard learning schedules below. Depending upon your individual wishes you can also make your own schedule.
