About

From comedians like Stephen Colbert to leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., a philosophy major opens doors and enlightens curious minds. The Philosophy program is offered by  Florida Southern College.

Overview

Students who pursue the B.A. in Philosophy will deal with fundamental questions about the nature of reality, knowledge, and value: Is there a God? Is the soul something different from the body? Do human beings have free will? Are there objective standards of morality? What are the grounds and limits of human knowledge? 

Philosophy addresses these kinds of questions using critical reasoning methods that develop students’ problem-solving skills. Philosophical reasoning skills are portable: you can adapt them to various kinds of practical and theoretical problems. Philosophy is especially useful as a major or minor for students considering graduate study or career fields requiring abstract reasoning and creative problem solving abilities.

Mission

The mission of Florida Southern College is to prepare students through dynamic engaged learning to make a positive and consequential impact on society.
