Bachelor of Science - Philosophy
Sewanee: The University of the South
Earliest start date
The Department of philosophy offers students an approach to philosophical thinking that is both historical and critical and allows students to become acquainted with the fundamental ideas and arguments of philosophers that have importantly shaped and challenged Western and non-Western civilizations. Studying philosophy at Sewanee introduces students to the ways that the intellectual movements and changes in the history of philosophy arise out of perceived dilemmas and crises within the established social, scientific, and religious traditions and presupposes that various reflective traditions have important things to say about the basic concerns of all human beings. At the same time, courses are designed to help students think critically for themselves, defend their own beliefs, appreciate the value of alternative beliefs, and acquaint our students with diverse points of view.
