About

The Department of Philosophy provides a course of study that enables students to be successful in graduate programs, law or medical schools, and in careers when reading, thinking, and writing skills are vital.

The faculty aim to improve students’ skills in careful reading, critical thinking, and clear writing, and to involve students with the philosophical community regionally and nationally. Students have opportunities to explore the foundational questions underlying their lives and careers.

Courses focus on the nature of truth and knowledge, the relationship between mind and body, human good, and moral obligation. Philosophy explores the history of western thought and develops intellectual abilities important to any discipline or profession.

A major in philosophy requires nine course and a minor requires six. Additional information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
