This subject involves the rational investigation of questions about existence, knowledge and ethics, to which there are no simple answers. Investigation of these problems through the study of Philosophy requires skills of critical reasoning, developed through an understanding of reasoning and the foundations of argument analysis.

Philosophy promotes respect for intellectual integrity as a human value and develops students' skills to engage in philosophical argument.

Students build their capacity to be creative and independent critical thinkers who can articulate and justify philosophical positions and argue reasoned action.
