Course details

CRICOS course code: 001694A

Level of study: Bachelor's Degrees

Summary

The Bachelor of Arts is your ultimate springboard into a wide range of careers and further study options.

The Bachelor of Arts will equip you with a range of specialised and transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers: creative thinking, respect for multiple perspectives, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

Philosophy is the critical and unbiased inquiry into the questions that come before all others: What is the nature of the world? What are we? Is there a god or a plurality of gods? How should we live? What kinds of societies are just? Is love just chemicals in the brain? Should we fear death?

Many other fields of inquiry, such as physics, political science, sociology, psychology, artificial intelligence, and computer science, have their foundation in Philosophy. In turn, Philosophy investigates not only the conceptual foundations of these sciences, but how they reflect, or fail to reflect, the human desire for meaning in our lives.

Philosophy is the oldest of academic disciplines. But its concerns are timeless. The progress of the sciences, the political implications of capitalism, our changing social identities and many other trends raise questions about our metaphysical and ethical understanding.

What careers does Philosophy relate to?

Modern workplaces are invariably changing; responding to economic, political and social forces, which means employees need the basic intellectual capacities to adapt to change. Employers value Philosophy graduates who can thoughtfully challenge assumptions and think objectively.

Employers depend on people who are effective communicators and decision-makers, with demonstrable skills in critical thinking, problem solving, research and investigation. These abilities are fundamental for graduates in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, which includes Philosophy.
