Study a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy at King's

A central task of philosophy is to criticize and examine 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 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.
