A Philosophy Major shows an employer that you are willing to tackle difficult reading and thinking tasks, have the necessary skills to do problem solving, and can re-frame and re-evaluate moral, aesthetic and practical process dilemmas.

Our majors stand out for their exceptional writing skills and mastery of logic and arguments. Because the Philosophy Major is only 42 credits, majors can easily double major in two subjects, such as Computer Science and Philosophy, or Psychology and Philosophy. English, History, Math and Political Science are also often double majors for philosophy students.


Philosophy Courses:

  • appeal to those who are intellectually hungry
  • sharpen the ability to think critically, objectively, and ethically
  • build reasoning and writing skills
  • awaken creative thinking , and unconventional approaches to problem solving
  • teach ways to analyze problems from diverse perspectives

The value of Philosophy is, in fact, to be sought largely in its very uncertainty. The man who has no tincture of Philosophy goes through life imprisoned in the prejudices derived from common sense, from the habitual beliefs of his age or nation, and from convictions which have grown up in his mind without the co-operation or consent of his deliberate reason.
