Program Information

School: Glendon College
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Philosophy
Description: It is often said that philosophy teaches you not what to think, but how to think. You will study questions such as: What is truth? How we come to know the truth? What is it to be a person? Is morality relative or are there absolute moral truths? Why do we punish criminals by putting them in prison? Is democracy the best system of government? Through studying these questions, you will develop a better understanding of different points of view, and will become a better thinker, debater, and writer. The critical thinking skills acquired in studying Philosophy include developing a critical mind, analyzing key concepts, organizing ideas, and communicating effectively.The critical thinking skills you will acquire in the study of philosophy are transferable to many other areas. In fact, as a group, philosophy majors consistently outperform most other majors on standard admissions tests such as the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE). Philosophy graduates go on to successful careers as lawyers, doctors, administrators, teachers, journalists, diplomats, consultants, stockbrokers, bankers, and more.

The unique international bachelors degree prepares you for success in the global workforce by bringing international perspectives and experiences to your university degree. Glendon’s reputation for excellence in languages and academics, our close-knit diverse community, and our Toronto location make us the ideal host for bilingual and trilingual programs. International Bachelor of Arts (iBA) and International Bachelor of Science (iBSc) degrees follow the same structure as the BA and BSc, but fold in additional language courses, internationally-oriented courses, and an international exchange (typically completed in your third year).
