Searching for the truth
"I have a desire for questioning and reasoning and looking for the truth and answers – it's such a great foundation for all knowledge," says Deborah, a Philosophy (Honours) student at The University of Notre Dame Australia's Sydney Campus.
Deborah is studying a Bachelor's degree in the University's School of Philosophy & Theology and plans to enter postgraduate studies to continue her quest for knowledge.
"I have learnt so much from studying Philosophy that I'm going to continue with further postgraduate study after completing my Honours,” she says.
Deborah has always had a desire to study Philosophy but found her course at Notre Dame has also given her superior analytical skills – and a strong ethical framework.
"The personal attitude of the staff at Notre Dame is exceptional – you don't feel part of an assembly line and are not treated like a number. The lecturers actually care and support their students to succeed," she says. "I am graduating not just with a degree and knowledge about philosophy, but with the tools to think well and live well."
