philosophy

Philosophy can be studied in many programs and courses, allowing you to rigorously investigate claims about the grounds of existence, the possibilities for knowledge, the nature of justice, and the existence of God—to name a few.

Faculty members have expertise in the theory of knowledge, ethics, aesthetics, the philosophy of science, linguistics, and the philosophy of religion. Both Eastern and Western ways of knowing are represented in our curriculum.

How to Choose Your Path

You’ll choose what you study to earn a Bachelor’s degree that’s meaningful to you. Some students decide their programs as they go, while others chart their course in advance.

Aim for both breadth and depth; explore fields that may be related or that may seem very distant. You'll be surprised at what you discover.

If you're new to college, look for programs where you can gain a foundation, build key skills, and broaden your knowledge (FR only, FR-SO, or FR-SR).

If you already have a foundation in this field, look for programs with intermediate or advanced material (SO-SR, JR-SR, or FR-SR). These programs may include community-based learning and in-depth research. Some of these programs have specific prerequisites; check the description for details.
