Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 01032F

The Graduate Diploma of Philosophy has been designed to facilitate skills associated with studying philosophy and to provide a firm foundation for independent research. With an array of choices on offer, you can tailor this degree in alignment with your needs and interests in the discipline of philosophy. Over the course of your studies, you will explore the foundations of philosophy within the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, which emphasises the need to consider arguments from every point of view. Guided through a combination of the best ideas and problems that philosophy has to offer and teaching methods that emphasise the unity of experience, reason, and reasonable discourse, you will practise what it means to lead an examined life. It is widely accepted that studying philosophy promotes a high level of critical thinking. As a result, employers hold our graduates in high demand. Philosophy graduates have the knowledge and skills needed in careers that require rational, well-educated problem solvers. While many of our graduates will go on to teach, others might find themselves working in journalism, politics, medicine or private enterprise.
