About

Studying philosophy has intrinsic and practical benefits. Literally meaning "love of wisdom," philosophy is the inquiry into fundamental questions like: What is the good life? What is real? How can humans know? How do humans create and discover meaning in life?

When you become a student of philosophy you will significantly enhance your critical thinking, analytical and communication skills. Our curriculum offers both breadth and depth by combining a historical approach with an exploration of specific topics, issues, and thinkers. You will find philosophy to be a valuable major, or minor paired with another major like business or psychology. Many of our students find interest in the Critical Thought Symposium, an innovative and interactive education experience with scholarship potential.
