Universitat de Barcelona


What you will learn

The bachelor's degree in Philosophy at the University of Barcelona stands out for the variety and richness of methodological and conceptual approaches that are covered, as it offers different conceptions of philosophical activity.
Philosophy graduates must be able to develop logic and argumentation skills, a command of the language and creativity in the area of ideas, and manage and have a great capacity for reflection and analysis. In short, they must have sound, broad knowledge of the theoretical study of abstract problems and areas of discussion and debate.

Philosophy studies are considered appropriate for people who have taken other university courses and want to add to their training by examining in greater depth aspects of the foundations of knowledge and cross-cutting, interdisciplinary issues or issues of general theoretical interest.
This qualification enables graduates to work in secondary and further education, in the field of research and in the areas of culture and communication.
