About the programme

The Philosophy major at The American University of Paris is designed to give students a grounding in the major disciplines of philosophy—ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, aesthetics, political philosophy, and logic—by means of a thorough exposure to the history of philosophy. Greek philosophy, the early modern and modern period, and twentieth-century continental philosophy are particularly emphasized.

The Philosophy Major introduces students to the fundamental methods of philosophical enquiry, gives a historical overview of western philosophy from the Ancients to contemporary philosophical thought, and then allows students to develop their individual philosophical interest within a broad range of topic-oriented courses across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.

Example courses:

  • History of Philosophy I: from Ancient to Medieval
  • History of Philosophy II: from Renaissance to Modern
  • Discrete Mathematics
  • Philosophy’s Conjunctions: Existence, Value, Truth
  • Environmental Ethics
  • Philosophy of Aesthetics
  • Empiricism, Skepticism and Materialism
  • Concepts in Relativity and Quantum Theories
  • Phenomenology and Existentialism
