PhD in Philosophy

General Doctoral Studies and the Doctoral Program

As of Spring Semester 2010 there are two new possibilities for doctoral studies in the Philosophy Department at the University of Zurich: General Doctoral Studies (12 credit points) and the Doctoral Program in Language, Mind, and Practice (30 credit points). Latin is not required for either course of study. Only students enrolled for the traditional doctorate (without credit points) before the end of the Autumn Semester 2009 may graduate under the old regulations. Admission to the Doctoral Program "Philosophy: Language, Mind and Practice" requires a second application in addition to that for General Doctoral Studies.
