What You'll Study

In philosophy, students learn to think critically about fundamental questions concerning our understanding of the world and our responsibilities within it. By studying philosophy, students develop a thorough understanding of both historical and contemporary responses to these questions. This requires the ability to read and comprehend complex texts and to express ideas and arguments clearly and concisely. In addition, philosophy students gain an appreciation of diverse points of view, and learn to expose their own assumptions to critical reflection.
