The Christian church always needs people who can think, and the philosophy major at Houghton teaches you to do just that. Guided by approachable and involved faculty, Philosophy majors are taught to analyze arguments, sort through complexities, and compare worldviews, exploring the connections between philosophy and other disciplines as well as the relationship between reason and faith.
