About the Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy can look back on a long tradition. During the restructuring and reorganization process due to the Universitätsgesetz 2002 it was merged with the Department of Educational Sciences into one faculty. At the same time, study related organizational matters were taken over by the directorate of studies (to organize teaching) and the Studies Service Center (as a contact point for students). Research conducted at the department is subdivided into research topics, research projects and research groups:
