Philosophy is the discipline which develops the ability to think clearly about fundamental questions, including those that frequently lie at the root of other disciplines. Philosophy asks questions about the nature of knowledge, reality, truth, consciousness, freedom, moral obligation, aesthetic value, happiness, justice, and virtue--questions asked by those who seek to understand themselves, their society, and their world. We welcome students who are interested in questions of this order.
The Philosophy Department offers a concentration in philosophy for the Langara College Associate of Arts Degree. The concentration in philosophy is designed for students who are interested in preparing for a bachelor’s degree with a major in philosophy or who simply wish to focus on philosophy as part of their associate of arts degree.
Philosophy courses require proficiency in English and can present challenges to students whose second language is English and who have difficulty reading or writing English. Students with English language difficulties should discuss them with the department or the instructor prior to enrolment in a philosophy course.
