If you're fascinated by the big questions of what kind of beings we are, and how we interact with the world in which we live, then Massey University's Postgraduate Diploma in Philosophy is for you.
Philosophy isn't just about abstract thinking. With the Massey University's Postgraduate Diploma in Philosophy you'll develop highly applicable and useful skills. Studying philosophy develops your critical thinking skills: your ability to assess whether arguments are rationally compelling, and to make your arguments compelling to others. This skill is important in the workplace, and is consistently ranked by employers among the most desirable attributes in an employee.
It helps you in your day-to-day life too, such as when watching the news or reading stories on the internet. Through your study of philosophy you'll learn how to understand and evaluate what you read rather than just remembering
