There is much more to philosophy than just sitting outdoors and contemplating the meaning of life - but that's part of your Philosophy degree at Lewis University in which you will:

  • Analyze and interpret the works of past and modern philosophers
  • Examine basic questions concerning correct reasoning and the nature and sources of human knowledge and values
  • Investigate fundamental questions surrounding nature, being, reason, knowledge and faith that philosophers have wrestled with for centuries
  • Develop speaking and writing skills that enable you to communicate your own views effectively
  • Learn to analyze, develop and formulate logical arguments
  • Better your life through real-life and practical application of philosophical thoughtfulness

Career options:

The philosopher's ability to see the world - not as it is, but how it should be - is why more and more companies are trusting philosophy majors to help create new markets and paradigms for business, industry and state. Lewis Philosophy degree graduates go on to succeed in graduate school, law school or a wide variety of careers which require intensive communication and critical thinking skills, including education, business, psychology, social work, public administration and health care.
