O que eu aprenderei?

The one-year Higher Diploma in Philosophy gives you a rare chance to study western as well as eastern philosophy. You will study different philosophical concepts and theories, from issues of mind and consciousness, action and politics, ethics and aesthetics, to society and culture, globalism, and power and territory.

The course begins in September and gives students from all disciplines an opportunity for intensive study in both eastern and western philosophy. Students select 12 modules (60 credits) from year 2 and 3 undergraduate options.

The modules are designed to introduce philosophical questions, theories, and texts in a particular area. They typically involve set readings and writing assignments. It is generally expected that you will have an interest in reading and writing philosophical texts, but specialised knowledge of philosophical concepts or approaches is not presupposed.

In your modules you will study and discuss philosophy and become familiar with relevant concepts and authors. The course will develop your knowledge of the history of philosophy and ideas, improve your writing and critical reading skills, and hone your ability to understand and summarise arguments effectively.

Skills and Careers Information

Throughout the course, we emphasise that philosophy is not just something that you learn about, rather, it is also something that you do. To this end, we offer a number of courses that enable students to develop philosophical skills of their own, and we aim to foster the skills of analysis, creativity and discovery, as well as developing an in-depth understanding of non-European thought and culture. On this course you will develop the following skills:

  • critical thinking
  • inter-cultural competence
  • professional writing
  • construction and evaluation of arguments
  • communication
  • information management
  • design and planning
  • research and investigation.
