The mission of the Department of Philosophy is carried out through its courses, through its promotion of the W&J Philosophy Club, and through its efforts to involve students with the philosophical community both regionally and nationally. The philosophy department aims to help students improve their skills in careful reading, critical thinking, and clear writing. It also seeks to provide opportunities for students to explore the foundational questions underlying both their lives and their careers. Finally, it seeks to provide a major course of study that will enable students to be successful in arenas from graduate programs in philosophy to professional schools in law or medicine to a wide range of careers in which reading, thinking, and writing skills are vital.
