Degree in Philosophy

240 credits - Faculty of Philosophy and Arts

The core aim of the Degree in Philosophy is to study and enquire into the most fundamental issues of philosophic thought from its origins to the contemporary world, in different areas of reality, experience and values: knowledge, language, metaphysics, morality, political and social thought, science and technology, logic, aesthetics, anthropology and culture. Offering solid humanistic inter-disciplinary training and the development of analytical rigour, critical judgment and the ability to question, conceptualise and argue, the Degree in Philosophy educates competent students with a general profile to: a) carry out their duties in a wide selection of professions; b) continue in education with a high level of independence; c) specialise at postgraduate level on masters' and doctoral programmes; d) versatilely adapt to the specific needs of sociocultural contexts, and e) thoughtfully participate in passing on knowledge and taking on professional, civic and social responsibilities.

The degree is taught in Catalan, Spanish and English, a language in which students will attain the ability to understand and express themselves in, whether orally or in writing. The specific language of each subject is shown in the curriculum and teaching guide.
