The Philosophy sequence introduces students to serious and detailed thinking about the really big questions concerning reality as a whole, human nature, ethics, language, religion, truth and knowledge, logic, beauty and justice. The study of Philosophy, in both its historical and contemporary dimensions, assists students to develop critical thinking skills and clarity of thought, through which they learn to assess the strengths and weaknesses of complex arguments while also honing verbal and written communication skills. Employers across a very broad range of industries (including education, business, public administration, law, media and technology) report that they highly value the kinds of adaptable skills and attributes possessed by Philosophy graduates.
