Philosophy and Ethics

Why Study Philosophy and Ethics?

In Greek, ‘Philosophy’ means ‘love of wisdom.’ Philosophers use the tools of logic and reason to analyse the ways in which we experience the world in which we live. By studying Philosophy and Ethics at IIE MSA, you will acquire the internationally desirable skills of critical thinking, clear writing, and logical analysis. Different areas of philosophy are distinguished by the questions they ask. Do our senses accurately describe reality? What makes wrong actions wrong? How should we live? These are philosophical questions, and philosophy teaches the ways in which we should examine these questions. The kinds of questions philosophers ask are of interest to all of us because we all ask the same questions.

This study area provides skills in reasoning and argument that are applicable in a wide variety of professions, as well as the opportunity to engage in a reflective appraisal of our place in the universe.

To study Philosophy you can enrol for the IIE Bachelor of Social Science degree with a study area in Philosophy, offered at IIE MSA.

Following completion of your three-year Bachelor’s degree, you can articulate into the IIE Bachelor of Social Science Honours with a specialisation in Philosophy and subsequently, a research IIE Master of Philosophy. Both these IIE degrees are offered at IIE MSA.
