This diploma program is designed to introduce educators and professionals with a wide variety of interests to the study of philosophy and education. In addition to the required 12 points in Philosophy and Education courses, students may use their electives to develop an area of educational interest (e.g., educational policy, curriculum and teaching, developmental psychology, etc.) and to develop an area of philosophical interest (e.g., ethics, social philosophy, philosophical anthropology, etc.)
What Will You Learn?
- Education has primarily focused on what to learn rather than how to learn. Philosophy of Education is an inherent extension of epistemology (Theory of Knowledge) and the continuing debate of how we know and what we know. This course considers the validity and the utility of concepts and methods used in Educational Theory and Practice. It also analyses what is only Education-so-called and a threat to real education. The students focus on the educational agendas around the world.
