Program Information

School:The University of British Columbia - Vancouver
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Philosophy
Description:Philosophy covers everything from fundamental questions about knowledge, the meaning of life, and how to live it, to questions about how to design intelligent robots, the ethics of scientific and technological innovation, and how to evaluate government policies.

The study of philosophy gives you tools to think carefully and critically about almost any subject that you may be interested in. You will learn how to analyze arguments, construct your own arguments, and understand the historical context of many of today’s most pressing problems. Philosophy can help you improve your ability to read, write persuasively, and present your ideas effectively; to analyze and evaluate complicated information usefully; and to solve complex problems.
