A major, minor, or extended minor in Philosophy from UFV expands your ability to think independently and become a powerful problem-solver. Deepen your grasp of ethical issues, explore different belief systems, learn to lead fair and constructive discussions, and write clearly and concisely.
UFV’s minor in Applied Ethics and Political Philosophy sharpens your capacity for creative and critical thinking by providing you with an in-depth understanding of the ideas and theories underpinning society’s political institutions. Studying applied ethics also gives you the opportunity to articulate your own values and identify the values motivating others.
Philosophy major students who have excelled in their program have the opportunity to enhance their credential with the Bachelor of Arts Philosophy Honours. This option can raise the profile of the student’s academic transcript and demonstrates a higher level of commitment and proficiency over the normal major.
