Philosophy (PHIL)

Career Options & Highlights

Philosophy is the logical examination of the fundamental issues people have pondered for over 2500 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? Philosophy courses are directed toward understanding these questions in their historical and cultural contexts and applying insights to contemporary life. Rigorous philosophical study will improve one’s critical thinking skills.
