About

The study of Philosophy is an indispensable part of a liberal education. In its critical function, philosophy teaches students to analyze arguments and to assess the value of various claims of knowledge. We offer a bachelor degree in Philosophy at Saint Anselm College. 

Overview

In its systematic function, it develops an integral view of the world, with a special focus on the human person and with final reference to God as the highest cause. In its ethical function, philosophy presents an account of the rational principles which ought to guide one's moral life. Accordingly, the Philosophy program endeavors to sharpen students' critical skills, integrate their knowledge of reality, and assist them in living a more rational and more worthy life.

To satisfy the core requirement of philosophical reasoning, all students at Saint Anselm College take two courses in philosophy, one in theoretical philosophy (THER) and the other in practical or moral philosophy (ETH). In addition, philosophy majors must complete seven further courses in philosophy, as indicated below.

Students who major in Philosophy at Saint Anselm College follow a program in the history of philosophy supplemented by courses in systematic philosophy.  This is usually a three-year program, but students who become majors at the end of their sophomore year will be able to complete their requirements.  After graduation, many philosophy majors attend law school or graduate school; others pursue employment in a variety of capacities, such as positions in business, government, ministry, education, and the arts.
