The study of the history of philosophy is a historical as well as a philosophical discipline. It is philosophical because it seeks the origins of contemporary philosophical debates. It is historical because it seeks to understand these origins on their own terms and in their own context. Consequently, its practitioners must be not only philosophically competent but also proficient in the use of historical methods.

Moreover, in the Ancient and Medieval Western world, philosophers from Plato and Aristotle to Thomas Aquinas and William Ockham wrote in either Greek or Latin. This means that anyone who wants to know what these philosophers really said, without the distortions inevitably caused by translations, must also have a grasp of the classical languages and such related auxiliary disciplines as paleography and textual criticism....

The programme combines historical, philosophical, political and legal perspectives on the complex phenomenon that human rights represent in our world.

Programme overview

This Master’s programme aims to strengthen the student’s theoretical knowledge and understanding of the vital importance of images and other visual expressions for communication in society.

Furthermore the role of visual communication (and to some extent, its auditory reinforcements) is analysed –in artistic as well as mass medial forms – when it comes to shaping the major issues of life....

MFA in Interaction Design

Masters programme, 120 ECTS-credits

Developments in Information Technology have challenged industrial design tradition by demanding a shift of emphasis from the idea of "product-as-object" towards the notion of "product-as-event" where the dynamic and interactive qualities of products and services need to be better understood in the context of human behaviour. This shift of focus has inspired us to develop our Interaction Design Programme and to initiate new areas of research in the design field.

Our Interaction Design Programme deals with the relation between people and Information Technology with a particular focus on the interaction between product and user. We see the discipline of Interaction Design as the ability to design both the cognitive and physical interface and integrate them into a successful whole. Our aim is to enable designers to create sustainable, comprehensible and pleasurable information-based products, services and environments.... [-]
