The Department of Philosophy offers a program leading to the Bachelor of Arts in philosophy that develops students’ abilities to think critically, examine fundamental questions about the nature of the self and the world, and thus to establish a foundation for intelligent action in the world. Students are exposed to a variety of philosophical perspectives and asked to philosophize. Because philosophy teaches clear, coherent and creative thinking, it can be of service in almost any field, particularly law, medicine, government, education, computers, publishing and business. The department also prepares students for graduate study in law, theology, social work and philosophy.
