Epistemology is a fundamental field within philosophy that explores the nature, scope, and limits of human knowledge. It questions what knowledge is, how it is acquired, and how we can differentiate between true knowledge and belief. Students delve into topics like perception, justification, skepticism, and the theory of truth. The curriculum emphasizes critical thinking and philosophical analysis, encouraging students to examine various theories of knowledge and understand the philosophical underpinnings of different knowledge claims. Skills developed include logical reasoning, argumentative writing, and conceptual analysis. Graduates often pursue careers in academia, research, education, or any field that benefits from deep reflective and analytical thinking about the process and validity of knowledge acquisition.
