Philosophy Undergraduate Program
B.A. or B.S. with a major in Philosophy
Philosophy encourages critical and systematic inquiry into fundamental questions of right and wrong, truth and falsehood, the meaning of life, and the nature of reality, knowledge, and society. More than any other discipline, Philosophy explores the core issues of the Western intellectual tradition. With its emphasis on reason and argumentation, the philosophy major is an excellent preparation for a career in law, business, medicine, education, psychology (expecially cognitive science), journalism, spiritual and therapeutic counseling, and social justice activism.
