Key learning outcomes The study of philosophy (single-subject and double-subject study) focuses on classic philosophical topics with regard to moral philosophy and political thinking as well as the issue of education in the contemporary world. Systematic approach in the lectures and seminars encourages the students to develop their critical thinking and interpretative and interdisciplinary abilities. The students acquire these skills both studying the history of philosophy, from antiquity to the present time, and systematic reflecting and discussing the problems of modern science, scholarship, individuality, moral philosophy, philosophy of education and political philosophy. The graduates of bachelor`s degree in philosophy can continue their studies in master`s and doctoral degrees. The philosophy graduates are appreciated for their ability to think both critically and creatively, to argue and discuss logically, and mainly to work with highly abstract texts, that is in reading and interpretation as well as in writing their own texts. They are well versed not only in the classic philosophical questions, but they are also able to think in the interdisciplinary context. The graduates have a good knowledge of the key problems in the field of education, science, ethics, politics and their significance for a modern legal state and democratic society. In this sense, they are able to aim at the future, i.e. to see the potentials of social development and help to cultivate them. The philosophy graduates find employment in the areas where values, knowledge and skills necessary for running a modern legal state and responsible democratic society are managed and cultivated. In particular, they work in regional, state and European administration or in private and non-profit (national and supranational) institutions dealing with education, science, politics or culture in general, for example education system and media. The most successful graduates can find employment as teachers at grammar schools or universities; alternatively, as researchers at scientific institutes.
