About this Degree
This involves studying the major figures of the western philosophical tradition and assessing the major options that have emerged. The student acquires the philosophical skills of inquiry, including critical thinking, the discovery and evaluation of basic assumptions, the analysis of concepts, the analysis of experience, and the construction and assessment of arguments.
The study of Philosophy at the University of Georgia enhances analytical, critical and communicative skills that are applicable to any subject. Philosophy is a traditional major for pre-law and pre-medical students and is a desirable accompaniment to a career in the sciences, business, communications, political science, and many other disciplines requiring advanced thought and comprehension of complex issues.
