The bachelor's degree in Philosophy aims to train students in rational and critical thinking, which is the type of knowledge defining philosophy par excellence and which only this discipline can transmit it to you in a comprehensive manner.
For this reason, the study plan incorporates competences related to the integrated training of students and of others such as reading comprehension of philosophical texts, the critical analysis of ideas, the discovery of implied suppositions in all discourses, the construction of convincing arguments and clear and persuasive argumentation.
Our objective is to help you acquire the following competences:
- Ability to comprehend texts, ideas and arguments belonging to past and current philosophies.
- Capacity for reasoning and abstract thought.
- Humanistic interests.
- Critical spirit.
- Capacity for reflection.
- Verbal and/or communicative abilities in social networks.
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).
Philosophy has taught me to have a critical spirit and ask myself about the world surrounding me and how I relate to it. To learn to think, to learn what and how we think has given me the tools to grow as a person, and it has turned philosophy into a professional device with which to propose new ways of living in this world and making it better.
