Study a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy at King's

A central task of philosophy is to criticize and examine in order to discover truth. Philosophy students at King's dig into valid and invalid forms of reasoning, seek to understand major developments in the history of Western political thought, wrestle with the theory of knowledge and much more.

How do the ethical and aesthetic problems in the environment affect us as humans? How did St. Augustine in Medieval times think about divinity, or the integration of faith and reason? What can be gleaned from Nietzsche's discussion of the causes and consequences of Nihilism? These are the kind of questions students ask as they examine the nature of humankind.

I am beginning a PhD in Philosophy in September 2020. King's has certainly paved the way for me to pursue this avenue!  "Being at King's has encouraged me to engage deeply with the world around me. I have grown exponentially because of this." One question I have been asked often is, "how are you applying what you're learning in class to the real world?". Truthfully, I don't think my studies are divorced from the real world. My engagement with philosophy and my time at King's is the real world.…
