Program Information

School:King's University College
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Philosophy
Description:One naturally assumes that our social, political and everyday worlds and attitudes are simply what we inherit, either from our genetic constitutions or socio-economic, material situations. Philosophy, on the contrary, teaches that human beings largely fashion their lives and worlds by the choices they make, the words and concepts they employ, the thoughts and perceptions they generate, and how they interact and interrelate with others. To this end, philosophy studies such important questions as: What is the nature of the self? What can one genuinely know and knot know? What can one hope for? What is to dwell in a political society? Does God exist? Do we have a unique purpose in this world?

The philosophy program at King’s offers students the possibility of following a general stream of study with the possibilities of focusing on the Continental European tradition and/or the intersection between philosophy and religion. Committed to humanist and personalist model of teaching, our classes are designed to develop critical reasoning skills, sustained thinking and reading abilities, sound argumentation, and, above all, philosophical capacities for reflection and insight. The unique foundation year in philosophy for all majors and specialists not only gives students an enhanced basic training in philosophy but also helps students participate in and form unique study and philosophy communities.
