Program description


Philosophy starts with those hard questions we all ask at some time or another. Some important questions of meaning and justification can't be answered by making observations or doing experiments. Philosophy is the effort to deal with these problems through sustained, hard, and critical thinking. Philosophy is good preparation for careers that call for you to use your mind, without prejudice but with rigor.

The Philosophy Department offers an undergraduate major, three undergraduate minors, and a graduate MA. For details on each of these programs, see the Philosophy Department web site.
