Philosophy, B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration
New York City, NY, United States
Philosophy deals with a range of fundamental questions. The methods philosophers employ in addressing such questions include careful analysis of existing opinions and their implications, free speculation about possibilities of all sorts, and rigorous critical reasoning to choose among theories.

Overview

The philosophy department program serves as an excellent focus for liberal education. Although some majors go on to distinguished graduate schools, most make use of their philosophical training in other pursuits. We believe that a student becomes liberally educated not primarily by accretion of information but by grappling with fundamental questions about life and learning.
