Overview

The BA program in Philosophy (in English) at Sofia University takes 4 years, each divided into 2 semesters. The core of the program is built around 28 mandatory courses, which cover the main systematic subdivisions of philosophy, as well as the chief periods of its history. Students also take 14 elective courses delving into an in-depth exploration of selected problem areas and providing a more strenuous focus of study and research. In addition, students take a number of theoretical and practical education courses required for obtaining a license to teach in Bulgarian secondary schools. The program places a special emphasis on the history of philosophy and continental philosophy, but also includes a number of courses in the analytic tradition.

Graduates acquire the skills needed for working in Kindergarten, Elementary, Primary and Secondary and Higher Education, research organizations, Business areas, NGOs, and the public service.
