Students of philosophy question human problems, from existence and reality to language, religion, and values. The philosophy program is designed to give students a rigorous foundational knowledge of the nature of philosophy: its origins, development, and the implications it may have on other areas of study. The focused program allows students to generate ideas and develop research and communication skills while maintaining an atmosphere of community within their courses.
With the critical-thinking skills developed in this program, many students continue their education in law, medical school, politics, or graduate studies in the humanities. For students who wish to gain employment right after graduation, it is highly recommended that they dual major. Though they will most likely become employed in fields relating to their second major, the skills and expertise developed in the philosophy program will give them extra advantages in interviews and during their employment.
