Philosophy Minor

The study of philosophy directly involves the student in the process of sharpening critical and analytical abilities. Philosophy courses examine some of the greatest perennial questions of values, knowledge, reality and their relation to human nature.

Training in philosophy is excellent preparation for any career choice, and many students combine a philosophy major or minor with work in another discipline.  In addition, philosophy has been a traditional academic major for students interested in law school.
