Solving complex problems requires critical thinking.

We believe critical and creative reasoning are key to tackling societal challenges today. That’s why we offer philosophy at Swinburne.

Philosophy is an opportunity to gain an understanding of the philosophical themes that have shaped our worldview. We provide a thorough exploration of environmental philosophy, ethics, philosophical psychology, history of ideas and more. You’ll also learn how to think in a critical, creative and rigorous way, to solve complex problems. In fact, your ability to apply various theoretical frameworks will allow you to work through age-old and emerging philosophical issues.
