About The Discipline:

The study of philosophy is concerned with the transmission and evaluation of basic beliefs and values about reality, knowledge and logic,​ morality, and social justice. It provides a fundamental basis for understanding many areas of human endeavor, including scie​nce, art and literature, religion, communication, education, politics, and technology. It is not an easy field. But for more than 25 centuries philosophy has been judged most rewarding by those who seek self-development, intellectual sophistication, and the happiness of a reflective life.

An undergraduate​ degree in philosophy is academically rigorous. It is excellent preparation for law and medicine, as well as a spectrum of entry-level positions in business, public service and more. Read more and watch a video about the advantages of studying philosophy.

UCD Philosoph​y Department offers:
  • A Bachelor of Arts that includes the study of three major periods: ancient, modern and 20th-century philosophy
  • Minors in Philosophy, Ethics or Religious Studies
