Learn in small weekly discussion sections, discuss the course material in an intimate, supportive setting and develop your ability to verbally express yourself. We offer a Philosophy degree at Rider University. 


The study of philosophy explores fundamental questions about persons and the universe. What is knowledge? What is a good life? What is the meaning of life? What is reality? How do psychology, religion, art, history and science contribute to an understanding of our world and our place in it? By studying philosophy you are encouraged to develop your own ideas about these and related issues.
