Program Information

School: MacEwan University
Faculty: Faculty of Arts & Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Philosophy
Description: Philosophy is one of the most abstract and yet practical and concrete disciplines of the Arts. The study of philosophy, especially ethics, can relate directly to business, medicine, public policy, education and law. Similarly, theoretical philosophy can complement and elaborate on concepts dealt with in psychology, sociology, religious studies and political science.

Philosophy teaches analytical thinking, logical presentation, and competence with abstract concepts. More importantly, philosophy encourages you to consider more deeply and critically your own world-views and belief systems. It provides the opportunity to reflect, in a systematic and organized fashion, on basic issues that bear on our individual lives.
