    The two-year programme in Philosophy is intended for students in a particular academic discipline, who are interested in the philosophical foundations and methodological aspects of that discipline.

    The programme aims to give students a broad and deep knowledge of and insight into philosophy, a number of its branches, and their historical development. Additionally, the programme aims to give students advanced academic skills in the interpretation of texts, the analysis and solution of conceptual problems and the communication of ideas and viewpoints to specialist and general audiences. The Leiden Institute for Philosophy has strong international links with philosophy departments worldwide, resulting in an active programme of visiting scholars and lecturers. The Institute's research programme 'meets the highest international standards', according to the latest external research assessment of March 2006.
