BA in Humanities Programme (first Bologna cycle degree)
The study program is based on the fundamental aspects of philosophical, religious, historical, anthropological and artistic disciplines that enable understanding of the world in which we live. The study journey begins with an introduction to the foundations of philosophy in Greece, with particular emphasis on ethics, art, literature, logic and hermeneutics. The study continues with deepening the knowledge and upgrading it with research seminars, elective courses and useful aspects of modern humanities, such as environmental ethics, new technologies, new energy use and contemporary themes in theology, philosophy, and political economy.
The study programme is especially dedicated to understanding and evaluating humanistic phenomena that enable an informed professional and ethical way to deal with the challenges of dehumanisation of individuals or social groups.
