The Philosophy program from the University of Nebraska Omaha attempts to understand the world in as unified and general a way as possible. 


About this Degree

Philosophers want to know what there is, how it works, how we know, how we should live, what is good, what is immoral, whether or not there is a God, and many other things —and, especially, how all these things fit together. One reason the study of philosophy is useful is that the methodology of philosophy—careful reasoning, precise application of logic, and thorough analysis of concepts—is applicable to any subject matter whatsoever. 

The Philosophy major from the University of Nebraska Omaha may be earned in one of three ways: (1) the traditional major with requirements covering the core areas of the discipline – metaphysics, theory of knowledge, ethical theory, and history of philosophy, (2) the major with a concentration in the philosophy of brains, minds, and machines, particularly suited to students with interests in subjects like psychology, neuroscience, cognition, or artificial intelligence, and (3) the major with a concentration in ethics, law, and social/political philosophy, particularly suited to students with interests in these areas, some of whom intend to earn advanced degrees in law, criminal justice, sustainability, or other related fields. The philosophy minor offers options for electives suited to nearly any companion major. The interdisciplinary ethics minor enhances and complements most other degrees.
