About the Program
- Develop a better understanding of yourself and the world around you. Our degree plan covers everything from the philosophy of art, religion, science and technology - to political philosophy, logic, ethics and metaphysics.
- Broaden your perspectives by attending state philosophy conferences, and join our student organizations for social and community activities, networking and professional development.
Earning your philosophy degree can open career doors for you in a wide variety of settings, including everything from education, ministry, medicine, law and business - to government, criminal justice, public relations and technical writing.
Plus, a study by the Educational Resources Information Center demonstrated that philosophy majors consistently scored higher than other majors on graduate school admission tests.
A Minor in Philosophy is also available and pairs well with any of our academic majors.
Our experienced and diverse faculty are partners with our students. You can work side by side with them on research projects, and our small class sizes mean you get the individual attention you deserve.
Our nationally-recognized philosophy program can help prepare you for success in virtually any career field, or to move on to graduate or law school.
