BA in Philosophy | Year 4
I was always fascinated by knowledge, and wanted something that I can study that can integrate my more holistic and diverse interests. Also, I didn't really like how most of my peers saw knowledge as purely instrumental— not to take anything away from wanting to succeed in one's career, but I wanted something that is also much more meaningful and enriching for the self.
And I came across the philosophy program in NTU. It is a young program, with an amazing faculty-student ratio. In judging between NTU-SoH and other universities, I considered how the philosophy department in SoH is much lighter on its feet, much more open to new ideas and new ways of doing philosophy. There is also really generous support that can accommodate all sorts of research I want to do in philosophy.
