Philosophy

The doctoral study of philosophy at the Faculty of Theology USB is four-year long, completed with obtaining the degree Ph.D. The programme is accredited in Czech and English languages.

It is above all the scholastic of the High Middle Ages, philosophy of the modern period (second scholastic, Kant), philosophical anthropology, ethics and philosophy of religion.

The study takes place in several seminary groups (basic seminar common to all students of the given programme, specialization seminar for small groups according to the focus of dissertation thesis and individual seminar consisting in concrete work on the dissertation under the advisorʼs supervision).
