Overview

Key facts:

  • There is no major more practical and marketable than philosophy and religion. To understand any human cultural system—whether political, social, scientific, economic, or psychological—you need to learn to recognize and analyze the philosophical and religious beliefs and assumptions grounding that system.
  • This program at Truman State University offers you a practical edge to any career you pursue by boosting your critical-thinking skills and enhancing your ability to write persuasively. You also learn how to speak and listen in ways that promote understanding and how to read productively while balancing openness and critical reflection.
  • You have opportunities to participate in research and submit a paper to a conference, such as Truman’s Undergraduate Philosophy and Religion Conference held on campus each year. And you can expand your network by joining organizations such as the Philosophy and Religion Club, where students learn about the important issues that impact our day-to-day lives.
