Philosophy majors at SUNY Oneonta College are challenged and instructed to think clearly and responsibly, to communicate their ideas more effectively, and to listen to the ideas and opinions of others with increased empathy and understanding.


Common topics in philosophy courses at SUNY Oneonta College include self-identity and worth, cross-cultural and/or interdisciplinary investigations, and contemporary moral and ethical issues.

Because it encourages broad-based understanding, critical thinking and creative problem-solving, philosophy provides a range of options for double majors and a solid foundation for graduate studies. Students with multidisciplinary interests often combine philosophy with art, English, music, theatre,  psychology, anthropology, political science or sociology. Two B.A. concentrations are available: Applied Philosophy or Liberal Arts.


The Philosophy Club offers the opportunity for students from all fields to meet and discuss philosophical issues, explore professional possibilities and organized the annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference. Initiated in 1995, the conference has become one of the most respected events of its kind, hosting students from prestigious universities, such as Harvard and the University of Chicago, and from as far away as Hawaii, to present and discuss papers on a variety of topics.
