Philosophy is the mother of all sciences. It is distinguished from all other subjects not by a specific subject area, but by the general character of its questions. The open structure of the degree programme allows personal focal points in the area of the history of philosophy, theoretical philosophy and philosophical ethics, depending on one's interests. The aim of the study programme is to deal independently with philosophical topics and texts, to develop one's own well-considered positions and to represent them convincingly in oral and written form. Philosophy can be studied in Augsburg both as a Bachelor's major and as a minor subject in currently 16 modularised degree programmes.
