Profile of the programme This Philosophy degree has adopted as its profile a philosophical performativity that is rooted in the act of questioning, assuming the importance of thinking about the issues of our times. The study plan reflects this, with course units that are questions, others that look at current challenges, with electives units that can be chosen among all the training offer of UBI, without neglecting a solid training in the history of thought.

We intend
1) To provide a systematized and participated knowledge of the theoretical contents of philosophical thought, in its wide variety of methods, themes and approaches;
2) To cultivate the disciplined and rigorous practice of philosophical questioning, through familiarization with instruments of critical analysis, interpretation and philosophical synthesis;
3) To enable to exercise philosophical interpretation of their time, their world and their history;
4) Contribute to the intellectual, socially aware maturation of students.
Key learning outcomes To equip students with a multifaceted repertoire of skills
1) systemic-historical, in order to develop the ability to locate and discuss themes, debates, currents and authors, both in the course of its temporal contextualization, either in the context of their theoretical and / or doctrinal consolidation;
2) analytical-methodological, in order to promote the ability to articulate autonomously tasks of research of sources, interpretation of texts and dissemination of results with expository rigor, interpretative flexibility and academic reliability;
3) critical-reflexive, in order to raise the art of questioning, problematizing and conceptualizing signs, events and trends in the light of the most pressing cultural, scientific, social, economic and political challenges.
Occupational profiles of graduates Philosophy teaching; labour activities with high skills of socio-cultural interpretation and public space; theoretical and applied research.
Learning facilities The study cycle will have at its disposal a set of classrooms, equipped with information technologies and access to dematerialized resources, and located in the perimeter of the Faculty of Arts and Letters of the University of Beira Interior. This Faculty borders the UBI Library, which makes the location of the study cycle particularly privileged for the access to the resources provided by the Library. On the other hand, also in a particularly accessible way, the research unit Praxis - Centre of Philosophy, Politics and Culture is installed on the second floor of the Library. Finally, the Faculty has at least one room equipped with computers available for student work.
