2020 - 2021 Programme
Bachelor in Philosophy
For the holder of a Bachelor in History
This BA programme is designed to complement the ‘Literatures, Societies & Civilisation’ BA in History.
It qualifies its holders to pursue philosophy at master’s level.
The programme is designed to consolidate and broaden the student’s education in philosophy, and its courses are selected for their synergies with the ‘Literatures, Societies & Civilisation’ BA in History.
Programme content is governed by a harmonisation agreement between the universities of the French-speaking Community of Belgium. As a consequence, at least one course for each subject listed in the agreement for BA programmes in philosophy must be included in one of the student’s two ‘dualled’ programmes (i.e. included in either their BA in History or their second BA in Philosophy) and must total a minimum of 108 ECTS credits.
Students who choose their three BA history optional courses (9 ECTS credits) from among the courses mentioned above reduce their second BA programme by 9 ECTS credits. The second programme therefore totals 480h / 68.5 ECTS credits or 465h / 67 ECTS credits
The distribution of courses over the three years of study is agreed on an individual basis in consultation with the head of the philosophy department
The entire philosophy programme, in accordance with the principles set out above (BA in History, ‘Literatures, Societies and Civilisation’ programme) totals either 113 ECTS credits (975h) or 111.5 ECTS credits (960h)
