BA (HONOURS) PHILOSOPHY
Department of Philosophy, Christ Deemed to be University
The Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) degree course, offered in association with the Department of Philosophy, Christ University, aims at introducing students both to the history of Philosophy and various systems of Philosophy from Indian and Western points of view.An introduction into the philosophical discipline aims at equipping students to familiarise themselves with the development of systematic thinking that had been bequeathed to humanity.
The Department of Philosophy aims at an integral development of students.Hence along with the core philosophical subjects,it offers two subsidiary subjects,i.e.English Literature and Psychology along with Philosophy.As courses and these two branches of knowledge are offered along with philosophy (major), instruction and evaluation of all the courses pertaining to English Literature and Psychology will be completed in the first two years (i.e.First andFourthSemester) and the final year(i.e.Fifth and Sixth Semester) would be completely dedicated to the learning of the core philosophical subjects.That is,this honours programme is designed in such a way that the specialisation in philosophy will be supplemented by sufficient introduction into English Literature and Psychology.
A student who successfully completes this honours programme in philosophy will be competent to handle subtle issues pertaining to human existence and to acquire abilities of critical thinking in view of enabling him to lead a qualitatively enhanced life,which,in turn,would make him competent to contribute the development of the society at large.The first two years of introduction into English Literature and Psychology would supplement philosophy in view of providing a more sublime and holistic training in human thought and living.
