The Bachelor Degree in Philosophy is a program of good quality, accredited by Comités Interinstitucionales para la Evaluación de la Educación Superior, A.C (CIEES, for its acronym in Spanish.) These Committees are nine collegial bodies, composed of academic peers of the highest level of Higher Education institutions throughout the country. Its main mission is to evaluate functions and academic programs that are given in the educational institutions which request it. Also, to make specific recommendations for its improvement, contained in the evaluation reports, which are given to the managers of the institutions.
The Bachelor Degree in Philosophy was created in 1986, in Tijuana, due to the need to prepare professionals with a solid academic formation to carry out teaching and research activities. This Bachelor Degree provides to the students authors and works of the main philosophical schools. This in order to develop an analytical and critical rationality to conceptualize a contemporary reality (theoretically and discursively.)
