Explore the most fundamental questions in life with clarity, precision, and logical rigor.
As a philosophy student, you’ll investigate questions concerning the human condition that have been debated since the beginning of civilization, as well as philosophical issues arising in our high-tech, globally interconnected world.
Take courses in traditional branches of philosophy such as ethics, epistemology, the mind, and metaphysics. Learn about more recently developed areas or study philosophy in an interdisciplinary context in classes like Philosophy of Biology and Freedom, Markets and Well-Being.
Philosophic training is an asset to your career and enriches your personal life. You’ll learn to formulate precise and concise arguments; to identify fallacious reasoning; to understand and evaluate your own and others’ views and arguments; and to communicate successfully when you speak and write.
