  • Philosophy

    • Philosophy and religion are the heart and soul of a liberal arts education. If the natural sciences enable us to understand our world, philosophy and religion enable us to understand ourselves.In philosophy, you will ask the big questions: What is morality? What is justice? How do I know what I think I know?The disciplines you will develop through the study of philosophy prepare you for a wide range of career choices. You’ll be able to perform insightful and discerning analysis, and these critical thinking skills are the kind of expertise desired by the legal community, corporations, marketing firms and academic institutions.The study of philosophy also lays a firm foundation for graduate studies in almost any field of the humanities.
