Philosophy

The philosophy major is a classical liberal arts degree that introduces students to the breadth of human thought through history, classical and contemporary approaches to life's perennial questions, and the essential tools for human reasoning. It can be easily added to another major or taken as a stand-alone major. It is also an excellent major for students who desire further education through graduate studies in philosophy, ethics, or law.
The Department of Philosophy and Religion serves both general students and departmental majors. Graduates of the Department will be able to enter a variety of fields. Those who major in philosophy will be prepared for graduate work in philosophy, ethics, religion, law, and related fields. Those who pursue academic programs focused on ministry preparation may pursue pastoral or lay ministries according to their calling and choice of minor, as well as graduate work in religion.
