Philosophy & ethics

Philosophy teaches you how to think for yourself and how to analyse and communicate ideas clearly and logically. 

Ideas that you might be taught include epistemology (theory of knowledge), philosophy of religion, ethics and philosophy of the mind.

The skills learned as part of studying philosophy can be useful in many different jobs that require logical thought or communication of ideas and many people who study philosophy go on to work in careers in law, education, politics or business.

Philosophy is often studied alongside history, English, psychology or sociology.
