Students in this concentration also develop skills of ethical analysis and value inquiry, and learn to apply physiological thinking and humanistic inquiry to socially relevant issues concerning "self" and "context" with special emphasis on aspects relevant to the elementary classroom. Most importantly, "applied philosophy" students are encouraged to learn effective ways of bringing philosophical curiosity and critical thinking to life in elementary classroom setting. Students in our program also learn how to develop methods of philosophical inquiry tailored to the receptive capacities of their audience. The skills, knowledge, and practices of applied philosophical inquiry help to enrich the teaching and learning environment of elementary school classrooms.
