Philosophy Department

Degree Programs

The study of philosophy developes our ability to make sense of our lives, our surroundings and ourselves by immersing us in the most basic and exciting questions that human beings confront: What things are really important? What sort of society should we have? What is the difference between right and wrong? What is the difference between sound judgements and foolish opinions? What is the purpose of human life? What things are most real?

You can pursue a major in philosophy, or consider it as a second major, earn a minor or consider our philosophy-psychology major.
