Accelerator program - Philosophy (BA), B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 12 months


Philosophers think deeply about questions that occur to everyone from time to time. In our courses, we address such questions: What is the source of happiness? Can we have knowledge of the external world, ourselves, God? What is the relationship between the mind and the body? What is the proper attitude to have towards our death? By examining various arguments that attempt to answer these kinds of difficult but important questions, philosophers develop the powerful and prized skills and qualities of reasoning, critical thinking, and ability to appreciate different perspectives.
