Credit(s): 3

This course will familiarize students with past and present theories and issues in the philosophy of education.

The course will allow philosophy students to apply their knowledge of the discipline to an important realm of practical problems and provide education students an opportunity to think both critically and creatively about educational practice. Not offered on a regular basis.
