Philosophy involves thinking about some of the big questions we ask during our lifetime: Does God exist? Do the sciences tell us the truth about the world? How can we say what we mean? Are other people’s experiences like our own? What does it mean to be conscious? What are emotions and how are they relevant to our lives?
Courses and careers
We offer a Philosophy major for undergraduates and postgraduate studies by research in Philosophy.
Philosophy deals with some of the most difficult and abstract questions that engage reflective people. Studying philosophy develops advanced reasoning and communication skills, depth and breadth of view and the ability to think creatively but objectively.
These skills are in strong demand beyond university and so your philosophy degree can be of great benefit in fields such as:
- journalism and media
- government and public administration
