Examinations and diplomas
Regular knowledge testing (examinations and ongoing written and oral tests) facilitate the acquisition of methods and the development of individual competences.

The IPC prepares students for a double diploma: State Diploma - Diploma specific to the IPC.

It validates: 1,800 hours for the first cycle (three-years of undergraduate studies), that is to say 600 hours per year.

In Philosophy

Teaching is organized around four fundamental disciplines: logic, ethics and politics, the philosophy of nature and man, and metaphysics, to which are added lectures on the history of philosophy.

Defining, formulating a problem with precision, arguing: these acts of reason must be rigorously undertaken. This is something that is learnt.

Ethics and Politics
Its goal is to reveal how we should act. Here we look at the question of conditions of happiness in personal acts (ethics) or in social and economic life (politics). It is also the study of the history of political ideas and economics.

Philosophy of Nature
In addition, our mind is led to reflect on the world that surrounds it. We ponder the nature of the world, of being in motion, of movement and evolution, and the sciences that seek to penetrate the secrets of the universe (experimental sciences, physics-mathematics, biology, etc). The philosophy of nature also studies causality (the cause of movement, the different types of causalities, etc).

To ask ourselves about the world is also to ask ourselves about living things. Penetrating the mysteries of the human soul and mind, defining animal or vegetable nature is the work of psychology in connection with modern life sciences.

Metaphysics studies being as being. The goal of the metaphysician is to find out what it means to exist. The realities he has experience of are his starting point. But beyond the properties and characteristics of being he seeks to come back to the fact of being. These questions related to being lead us to ask ourselves about God, the absolute being.

In addition, lectures on general culture are provided so as to give students diverse career openings: intensive courses in modern languages (preparation for the IELTS, international English-language diploma from the University of Cambridge), lectures on history, general culture, preparation for competitive examinations in philosophy, scientific method, sociology, psychology, communication techniques, etc.
