BA in Philosophy: Cognitive Studies

USA

1

What will I learn?

Student will learn to reason critically: analyze the logical structure of arguments, construct and criticize arguments, analyze concepts and evaluate definitions, understand the relevance and use of empirical evidence, and how to employ and evaluate it. The individual will learn to write clearly and convincingly, in a way that articulates critical reasoning. The successful student will become conversant with the central problems and advances in the philosophical, scientific, anthropological, and sociological study of the mind and cognition. This student will also become familiar with central works in the philosophy of psychology and cognitive science.

This program prepares the student for graduate study in philosophy, and more generally for those professions in which it is central to employ clear thinking and a reasoned justification of opinion, and to integrate information from a diverse range of perspectives and traditions.

Success

The best reason to study philosophy is simply because it is interesting. However, in addition to satisfying a need to know, philosophy offers a number of additional benefits. Students who study philosophy learn to think deeply and carefully about complex issues. They learn to construct precise arguments in defense of their ideas. They learn to write well. Because most of our courses are small (especially at the 3000-level and above), students receive close personal attention to better help them develop these important skills.
