Program Information

Philosophy is a core component of a liberal arts education, with deep historical and conceptual ties to diverse other disciplines and fields of study. Accordingly, the Philosophy major serves the needs and interests of a wide variety of students, including those planning graduate study in philosophy, law, religion, or business; those seeking preparation for work in government, social service, education, journalism, or any field in which critical thinking is valued; and those desiring a rigorous, critical immersion in the liberal arts.
