Program Information

School:Vancouver Island University
Faculty:Humanities and Social Sciences
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Philosophy
Description:Philosophy is the critical and systematic study of the fundamental assumptions at play in the entire range of human activity. It concerns itself with explorations into the nature of reality, human knowledge, moral and scientific reasoning, art, and society. The study of Philosophy fosters the ability to think critically and innovatively, to communicate in a logical manner, to interpret and evaluate core concepts and theories in a number of disciplines and to articulate well-reasoned arguments. These competencies are vital to public discourse in a flourishing democracy and are particularly useful in such professions as law, medicine, business, and public administration.

The program's first-year courses are designed to introduce students to Philosophy and to assist them in the development of analytical skills. Second-year courses broaded the application of these skills to historical and contemporary issues. Upper division courses allow for some narrowing of focus, either in the direction of Applied Ethics and Political Philosophy or in the direction of traditional problems of Epistemology and Metaphysics. Students may include specified courses from Political Science, Policy Studies, or Liberal Studies in their program of study.
