Jordy Hesseling is this the right choice

Have you put what you have learned into practice?
I have also been able to put my knowledge about philosophy into practice. I have given an introductory course in philosophy at my old elementary school, and I’ve been a teaching assistant in the degree programme. I was also responsible for an online philosophy course.

Testimonial Philosophy right choice

What will students study?
“Among other things, students will study Islamic, Christian, and Jewish writings in Arabic (in translation, of course!) covering such exciting topics as the idea of God, the nature of the human soul, and debates on the role philosophical thinking plays in defining heresy and orthodoxy in Islam.”
