Expand your perspective with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. The BA in Philosophy at the Adelphi University provides you with strong background in the history of philosophy, logic, critical reasoning and helps shape how you present a rigorous argument.  


We offer a bachelor degree in Philosophy at the Adelphi University. You will also have the opportunity to broaden your perspective on contemporary issues through electives in philosophy of law, religion, science, bioethics, political philosophy, non-Western philosophy and many other topics.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of philosophy, students often combine a BA in Philosophy with a second major. Popular double majors combine philosophy and either psychology, English, political science or the natural sciences.

If you are considering graduate and professional schools, students with philosophy degrees have been shown to perform better on standard admission tests, including the LSAT, GMAT and the GRE.
