This Philosophy degree encourages students to raise questions and debate them in a supportive environment and an atmosphere of lively curiosity. In this course students will learn to question everything that is puzzling, disturbing, exciting and new. Students will develop their critical and rational faculties, build their perspective for impartiality and fairness in considering the views of others, and foster a cautious, reflective attitude towards others in relation to their current opinions and beliefs. Students can combine Philosophy with another major such as History or Religion. As part of the Philosophy major, students will have the opportunity to explore varying facets of ethics, phenomenology, and existential aspects of the human condition. Students will undertake core units in subjects such as ‘Critical and Creative Thinking’ and ‘Meaning and Interpretation’, and also have the opportunity to select electives in specialised areas of interest, including ‘Moral and Political Philosophy’ and ‘Ancient Greek Ideas’. Some of the more distinctive units that are popular among students within this major include ‘Existentialism’ and ‘Metaphors of Mind’. Recommended double majors include English and Creative Writing; History; Religion; Global Politics and Policy; Screen Production; or Sociology.
