Qualifications

Overview

Philosophy teaches you how to think rationally and carefully about complex questions such as: are killer drones immoral? What about genetic engineering? Should rich countries give substantially more in overseas aid? Is time travel possible?

These skills are of real value in the workplace and help in other study areas by encouraging you to look at a problem from all angles and find out-of-the-box solutions.
