Philosophy involves careful, critical reflection on topics and questions that relate to contemporary individual, social, moral, scientific, religious, and political issues.  Studying Philosophy at Hampden Sydney College helps sharpen our thoughts and evaluate our deepest beliefs.  


Philosophers are critical thinkers. If you want to think and reason well about anything, then taking at least some philosophy is a good idea. In philosophy, we do not train people to be lawyers, doctors, or businessmen -- we train them to be better lawyers, better doctors, better businessmen, and better practitioners in general. 

The vast majority of Philosophy majors do not go on to academic careers -- although the preparation you receive here will certainly help you if you decide to do so. 

Why Hampden Sydney College?

We know how to educate and empower young men. Here you will find a real brotherhood: friends and mentors who will walk with you on your journey toward not only a successful career, but also a meaningful life.
