Philosophy, Bachelor

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration

Overview

Training in philosophy is highly regarded in professional fields such as law, medicine, information sciences, business, artificial intelligence and government.  

Philosophy engages us in basic questions about the world around us. A philosophical person enjoys asking why, wishing to understand what reality is, what can be known, what makes actions right or wrong, and what the best kind of society is. Curiosity is key.

While philosophy appeals to one's sense of wonder about the world, at the same time, it prepares students for all kinds of challenges. Work in philosophy courses helps one defend and clarify one's ideas as well as analyze, understand and evaluate the ideas of others. Philosophy develops problem solving abilities, communication skills, persuasive powers, and writing skills—skills needed in any career.
