Overview


“Philosophy” means the love of wisdom. The Philosophy Program at UAEU introduces students to the core skills, values, and attitudes that underpin wisdom: curiosity, analysis, reasoned argument, imagination, critique, understanding, judgment, compassion and the love of truth. It also offers specific knowledge in key areas such as the history of philosophy, theoretical philosophy, value theory, political philosophy, logic and cognitive science. Graduates of the philosophy program can expect to gain advanced skills in communication, research, creative problem solving, ethical decision-making and the ability to understand complex abstract ideas. These are desirable skills for leaders in many professions, where clear thought, ethical-sensitivity, broad vision and creative imagination are required. Because of its breadth, depth and generic skills, philosophy combines well with all other subjects.
