Prospective Students

The study of philosophy is very old and very diverse. Philosophy students acquire skills in questioning, interpreting, analysing, criticizing and independent thinking, and are able to analyze and critique issues. By relying on both the history of philosophy and current philosophical issues philosophy students learn to inspect problems, locate hidden assumptions, presuppositions, and argument structure and carefully examine possible solutions. To achieve these goals and inculcate these skills, the Department of Philosophy offers a wide variety of courses in the Western philosophical tradition, both historical and cutting edge modern, as well as a selection of courses from other traditions.
