- Describe theories, principles, and concepts representing a wide range of the history of philosophy.
- Apply philosophical theories, principles, and concepts to novel scenarios
- Analyze philosophical arguments logically and critically
- Defend views on philosophical issues with clear and well-reasoned arguments
Studying philosophy at CCSU expanded by imagination and led to new ways of thinking. After graduating, I obtained an LLM in International Human Rights and a UK conversion law degree. I know that whatever I embark on next, I am armed with the ability to reason and communicate my opinions effectively.
