BA - Philosophy

Program Number: 0342

Philosophy is an excellent liberal arts major, a program that encourages intellectual, ethical, and aesthetic growth. Philosophy courses consider issues that range over the entire area of human concerns and interests. Also, philosophy is an excellent preparation for graduate study in many areas and for professional programs in law and theology.

In philosophy the most basic interpretations of reality and the deepest questions are carefully and rationally considered. The study of philosophy helps students learn to think clearly, to argue persuasively, to understand and evaluate basic values and beliefs, and to appreciate the great thinkers of world civilization.
