Philosophy, B.A.

Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy

The Bachelors degree in philosophy is concerned with teaching students the methodology of clear and logical thinking. In addition, it deals with ultimate questions of human existence, such as the nature of morality, the purpose of human life, the place of humans in the universe, the problem of evil, the nature of scientific theorizing, and other, similar problems. By taking various courses in systematic philosophy and in the history of philosophy, students will encounter various options on how these questions have been answered, and are invited to do their own critical thinking about them.
