Philosophy – Teaching degree

The basic principles of the Philosophy teaching course offered at UNISC include guiding students through historical essences of philosophy.There is a continuous concern regarding all big efforts philosophers did along history to open up insights on understanding reality (which is present) in its different aspects: things, ideas, values, real situations, behavior, prejudice, facts and experiences.

On the other hand, this undergraduate course deals with the theoretical and critical basis of human knowledge and practices. This means that all principles and conditions related to human rationality and truthfulness; ethical, political, economical, artistic and cultural values; individual and collective preconceptions and the restatement of ideas which systems are based in go through a rigorous philosophic analysis while in the course.

The ones who graduate from UNISC are able to teach in different Philosophy fields, including: General Philosophy, Education Philosophy, Law Philosophy and Science Philosophy and they are entitled to work from Middle |Schools to Higher Education. Moreover, several skills and competences are developed during this course. They may include: understanding of the social and philosophical role schools have nowadays;commitment with values which inspire democratic societies; knowledge about the topics they will teach, the meaning they have in different contexts and their interdisciplinary approach; mastering the educational knowledge. Additionally, students are able to discern and discuss epistemological issues regarding science fundamentals, different ways of building scientific objects, establishing dialogues among Natural, Exact and Human Sciences and provide theoretical basis for professionals from several fields of human knowledge to understand how they established, throughout history, special concepts like “law” in the legal field, “consciousness” and “soul” in the religion field and the concept of “truth”.
