Why study Philosophy, Politics and Society in Nijmegen?

Are you fascinated by the political, technological, cultural and ecological challenges that dominate the headlines? Do you want to study the concepts and ideas behind those challenges? Are you interested in how our thinking about the world helps shape the world? If you are fascinated by the ideas that determine the course of humanity then Philosophy, Politics and Society may be the perfect fit for you.


PPS is a uniquely issue-oriented philosophy programme. You study the philosophical underpinnings of global issues that will determine the course of the future. The curriculum is organised around themes such as ecological crises, scientific progress, the future of technology, identity politics and the global political landscape.

  • For each theme, you examine a combination of key historical philosophical texts, contemporary thinkers and empirical cases.
  • PPS explores the defining issues of the 21st century from a wide variety of theoretical perspectives without the narrow economic focus of traditional PPE (Philosophy, Politics, and Economics) programmes.
  • PPS works with other faculties including Law, Management, Social Sciences and the Science Faculty.
