The Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy aims to train its students in the critical, rational thinking that characterises philosophy, and which only this discipline can deal with thoroughly.

Therefore, the syllabus provides a well-rounded education as well as such skills as the comprehension of philosophical texts, the critical analysis of ideas, the discovery of the tacit assumptions behind all types of discourse, and the construction and clear, persuasive presentation of arguments.

The degree in Philosophy offers in-depth knowledge of our rich philosophical culture and prepares students to transmit that knowledge to subsequent generations and to apply philosophical knowledge to the problems of today's knowledge society .

The degree includes two Specialisation tracks: Fundamental Philosophy and Applied Philosophy. This approach is markedly innovative with respect to current university courses in Philosophy.

The ideal student for this course should have the following profile:

  • Capacity to understand texts, ideas and arguments of philosophy.
  • Ability to reason and abstract.
  • Humanistic interests.
  • A critical mind.
  • Capacity for reflection.

Career options

These qualifications are preferentially aimed at teaching and research, but also cultural management – both in journalistic and publishing formats - and the counselling of people and groups.
The main job prospects are those related to cultural management in association with public administrations or companies offering cultural services, both in direct relation to the training (courses, libraries, archives, book publishing, magazine and newsletter publishing, publication of science and thought), and other areas more related to leisure, informal education, cultural analysis, cultural journalism and human relations services (youth centres, monitoring, public relations).
