Bachelor 3 Philosophy

Bachelor in Philosophy - Year Three

Credits: 60

Length: 1 year (can be spread over 2 calendar years)

Preparing for degree: Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy 

 

The third year of the Bachelor's aims to explore the full ramifications of philosophical thought through introductions to various modern and contemporary philosophers.

Although they often address almost identical questions, it is interesting to see how different philosophers constitute independent worlds of thought. Each philosopher constitutes a form of synthesis, of global vision, unified around a strong and central thought.

This begs the question: can dialogue exist between these various worlds or is thought exploded in heterogeneous universes?

At the end of the third year, students demonstrate their capacity for critical thought and philosophical understanding through a final paper. This is the chance for students to show what they have learned throughout the bachelor's, and prove that they are ready to undertake postgraduate studies.
