Career Options & Highlights

Philosophy is the logical examination of the fundamental issues people have pondered for over 2,500 years. What is reality and what is beauty? What is knowledge and truth? What is good and just? Does human existence have meaning and does God exist?

Rigorous philosophical study will improve one’s critical thinking skills.
