The undergraduate studies programme within our department is fully compatible with both the Polish and Vatican regulations regarding first-cycle studies. However, it also contains elements that are unique to our faculty. Studies last for three years (six semesters) and are organized so that the student makes consequential steps towards the desired learning outcomes: a solid base of philosophical knowledge, and the development of typical philosophical skills and competencies, including:

  • critical thinking
  • intellectual independence
  • the readiness for instant development
  • flexible thinking
  • the ability to develop non-standard solutions
  • methods for an effective organization of work and tasks
  • argumentation based on reason
  • resistance to manipulation

Classes include lectures, seminars, and discussions. All of these are delivered entirely in English and are conducted in a cozy atmosphere with an emphasis placed on providing high-quality education. Learning outcomes are verified by assessments. In most cases, these are oral exams or essays. They may also take place in seminars, where the student’s participation is the subject of assessment. Students have the opportunity to work both in groups and individually with their teachers. Each of our students is treated as a unique individual with genuine needs and their own path of development. We also endeavor to organize studies so that our students are able to work and study, or study another field simultaneously.

Studies in English are paid. The tuition fee is 4300PLN/1000 EUR per semester. There are some minor additional costs to be covered, such as the recruitment fee and the student's ID card cost.

Discussion classes are a unique chance to gather the students of all years together for a fruitful exchange of thoughts. Potential discussion classes are: Seminar on Metaphysics / Seminar on Ethics / Seminar on the Philosophy of Nature / Seminar on Epistemology / Seminar on Logic / Seminar on Philosophical Anthropology / Seminar on Political Philosophy / Seminar on the History of Philosophy The academic seminar is meant to be a class developing the skills necessary to write a thesis. Students are allowed to choose their thesis supervisors from among the faculty members, in accordance with their philosophical interests. To obtain a Bachelor's degree from our faculty, you should write the BA thesis and pass the final exam. Final exams are usually held in July and September.
