About

The mission of the Philosophy (Honors) Department  at University of Michigan Flintfalls into two interconnected areas: to produce clear thinkers and skilled communicators, and to advance understanding of our culture and history through an examination of the ways they have been shaped by philosophical ideas.

Overview

Learning outcomes

For students majoring in Philosophy, our Philosophy (Honors) program at University of Michigan Flint provides preparation for graduate work, or for employment in any field that requires analytical training, cogent reasoning, and clear self-expression. Many of our majors have succeeded brilliantly after graduating from the University Michigan-Flint with a BA in Philosophy.  

Philosophy is not just a subject; it is also a method. Philosophy emphasizes analytical skills connected with logical thinking, careful reading, and clear writing. This, combined with its connections to many other disciplines, makes the study of philosophy appropriate for students contemplating graduate work in a variety of fields. In addition, success in today’s workforce is increasingly dependent upon good reasoning and communication skills. Studying philosophy can promote the development of these skills. 

The department offers three majors and two minors, with most of the required courses being available online.
