The word philosophy means love of wisdom which is what this course will give you. You will study four major areas of philosophical thought. These areas include epistemology (theory of knowledge) and moral philosophy, which considers the ethical theories of major philosophical thinkers and applies them to real life scenarios.

The third major area includes the metaphysics of God, which examines whether or not we can prove God’s existence and if God does exist, look at his attributes. The fourth unit includes philosophy of the mind which considers matters such as whether the mind and body are two distinct substances and if so, how are they able to interact?

Philosophy will help you develop your analysis, evaluation, problem solving, research, and writing skills to present complex ideas clearly and concisely.

Progression routes
Philosophy is highly regarded by universities as it requires excellent analytical skills and comprehension of complex ideas. It combines well with theology, natural sciences, history, sociology, philosophy and law. It can also lead to careers in the civil service, journalism, social work, teaching, and charity work.
