Philosophy, BA

The Philosophy Department offers courses in logic, ethics, epistemology, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of science. We also teach topical courses focused on major philosophers, particular historical periods (ancient, medieval, modern), and discrete philosophical topics (for example, existentialism, aesthetics, and ancient science).

By challenging students to analyze concepts clearly and evaluate arguments critically, philosophy hones reasoning skills, stimulates intellectual creativity, and makes life more interesting and rewarding. By teaching critical thinking, persuasive writing, and effective communication, philosophy also develops skills in high demand by employers.
