  •  Bachelor of Arts Philosophy
  • Does life have meaning? What should we believe? What duties do we have to each other, to our society and to the environment? Philosophy addresses the fundamental questions in our lives and offers the chance to explore and debate these issues.
  • What you will learn

    You will discover that philosophy touches on almost every area of study, as all major developments in biology, economics, mathematics, physics and psychology started out as philosophical hypotheses. You will examine morality, the nature of the mind, and the structure of human thinking and you will engage in critical and creative thinking about fundamental questions, such as what is meant by a worthwhile life, what sense there is to the universe, what it means to be a good person, and what makes a just society

  • Careers

    Philosophy is an especially beneficial area of study for students who want to do any kind of work that requires good language and reasoning skills, including the ability to formulate good arguments and to critically appraise statements and problems. Philosophy students often go into law, but they are also successful in any field that needs clear thinking and good communication. Journalism and media, business, and education are also common career paths. Many institutions also require individuals with expertise in ethical reasoning, and many students will find that taking a double honours degree or minor in philosophy alongside an allied field will enhance their performance in that other field. Students in philosophy also tend to score very highly in post-graduate admissions tests.

    Some career opportunities include:

  • Law
  • Government and Public Policy
  • Journalism and Media
  • Education
  • Non-Governmental Organisations
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
  • Comedy and Entertainment
  • Ethics Consultant (in government, health, business, media, sport)

Entry Requirement

  • Applicant must be high school passed.

Application Process

  • Foundations of Mathematics 30 or Pre-Calculus 30
  • Students entering the Bachelor of Arts program, or who are undecided about which program they are interested in, are encouraged to take Foundations of Mathematics 30. Students interested in the Bachelor of Science program are encouraged to take Pre-Calculus 30.

    Students can be admitted into this college with a mathematics deficiency but are encouraged to consult the college upon admission to plan how to clear the deficiency.

     The high school classes that are required for admission purposes are not always the same as the classes you will need to complete the degree program you choose.

    For example, if you want to major in Chemistry, you will need high school Chemistry to take your first year university chemistry classes.
