The Philosophy major teaches students to read and think critically, analyze complex arguments, and clearly express themselves in thinking and writing, as they explore questions of existence, knowledge, and value. These abilities are also critically important to a wide range of careers. Because of the multifaceted nature of the discipline, our Philosophy program is designed in a way that offers students a great deal of flexibility in choosing classes. This makes Philosophy a strong second major for students who wish to become better critical thinkers and communicators.
