The Joint Bachelor of Arts consists of the studies of two different subjects/components.

The component Philosophy attempts to understand the nature, thinking and acting of human beings. From this comprehensive basic idea, it is initially not a specialised science; it is free to turn to the most different issues and areas. Students thus need strong language comprehension skills as well their own linguistic precision and the ability to think in an abstract way. Apart from philosophical prior knowledge, a sound basic knowledge of history, ethics and history of religion make the initial stage of program easier.
