Students may pursue a minor or major in Philosophy.

Philosophy is the systematic study of the questions that are most central to the human experience. It is the reasoned exploration both of the relationship between appearance and reality, and of the nature of human values. With logical rigor and through open dialogue, philosophy asks: what can I know? what should I do? what kinds of stuff exist?

These programs prepares students for responsible citizenship as well as post-graduate scholarship in philosophy. The study of philosophy transmits the heritage that created the foundations of contemporary life, and which shape the future in science, religion, politics, law, and morality.

Students engage with faculty of diverse expertise and have opportunities to gain great disciplinary breadth. Through the Capstone Research Project senior philosophy majors have the opportunity to work closely with a professor, focusing their efforts on a particular problem in the field.
