Interdisciplinary and socially engaged teaching and research

The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies plays an active role in several university-wide, national, and international research and educational consortiums — in addition to housing the university's Ethics Institute. Our researchers study a broad range of subjects: from philosophy to Christianity, Islam and other religious and secular traditions.

The strong research focus, together with extensive engagement with other disciplines and with the wider society, is further reflected in the high quality of the educational programmes offered by the department.
