Additionally, our visiting professors regularly offer "block courses", which are short but intensive courses lasting a few weeks.

Students are highly encouraged to take other philosophy courses and to attend classes in other departments that are appropriate for their chosen specialization. A full list of courses is available here: LMU’s LSF System (Lehre-Studium-Forschung). If you want to audit courses without taking them for credit, you don't need to register officially, but you have to agree with the lecturer beforehand.
