Recurring Events

Each semester the Political, Legal, and Economic Philosophy Master's program organizes many special events inviting guest speakers from all over the world.

Compact Courses take place the week before the start of each semester. Professors from around the world are invited to teach a topic in political, legal, or economic philosophy for an intensive course of one week full day classes. PLEP Students are required to participate in at least one of these courses for their Master's studies.

Upcoming Compact Course

Summer schools take place abroad or in other parts of Switzerland, in cooperation with the Master's programs EELP (Graz) and PELP (Bochum). Students are given the opportunity to earn credits studying a subject intensively while engaging with students and professors from universities abroad! Participation is typically limited so keep on the lookout for registration periods.
