Philosophy offers not only its intrinsic interest, but also valuable transferable skills that can be applied to other academic disciplines and endeavours. Study in Philosophy enhances communication skills, critical reasoning skills, and general problem-solving skills, in addition to helping you organize and unify information that you have learned in other courses.You can select a Major, Minor, or Honours degree in Philosophy; a Major in History and Philosophy of Science; or a Combined Major with other programs.
These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
