Find answers to life's most important questions

Studying philosophy at UFV helps you to pose questions that go to the heart of the matter at hand, and to produce and evaluate various answers to questions that may range from the prosaic, such as, "What kind of car should I buy?" and "Who should I vote for?" to the most profound, such as "Why should I obey the law?" and "Is there a God?"

With a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy from UFV you learn to express ideas clearly and logically, while becoming aware of the power and limits of logic and reason. In addition, you study some of the most historically influential ideas and great literature. Rather than memorize a bunch of dates or quotations, you will investigate, dialogue, and develop critical thinking skills.
