The philosophy major explores the basic questions of human existence, questions of value, aesthetics, ethics, logic, science, and meaning. Students discover the history of ideas and learn how to evaluate arguments, understand multiple points of view and develop clear and logical thinking.
The major consists of 10 courses, 4 of which must be in the areas of History of Philosophy, Value Theory, and Core Courses (at least one each). The other 6 are open electives in Philosophy. Philosophy majors must also take PHL 2230 for their quantitative methods course.
The requirements in the major are designed to allow students the freedom to study what interests them most. It also enables students to explore other disciplines or technical fields. Philosophy is an excellent choice for students who seek a well-rounded liberal education and is excellent preparation for those who intend to pursue further training in professional disciplines such as law, medicine, or theology.
