Welcome to the Philosophy Program in the College of Arts & Humanities. The Philosophy Program offers courses that enable students to develop skills in critical thinking, reasoning, and judging; to understand the role of premises and inference in ordinary discourse as well as in philosophical argumentation; to recognize and define different world views; and to comprehend the history of Western philosophy in particular.
As a cornerstone of the liberal arts education, philosophy is pertinent to virtually all other undergraduate fields of study. In addition to a major and minor in philosophy, both of which are excellent professional preparation areas of concentration, the program offers a concentration in law and both a concentration and a minor in religion.
