About: Philosophy

The Philosophy program is committed to teaching students how to think critically, reason carefully and act knowingly. We believe that a strong philosophical foundation is essential to a life well-lived, and crucial to a liberal arts education.

To these ends, we offer a wide variety of philosophy (PHI) courses and liberal arts studies (LAS) courses. While our focus is on the western philosophical and intellectual canons, we acknowledge and incorporate other philosophical and critical traditions, including African, Chinese, Buddhist, Indian and Latin American works.

Majors will be well-situated to go into business, politics, journalism, activism, law, medicine, seminary and/or graduate studies in a range of fields. It is quite possible to do philosophy as a second major or minor, and it pairs well with a number of other fields.
