Philosophy literally means "love of wisdom," and for most of human history anyone who pursued knowledge was considered a philosopher. Today, the term "philosophy" refers to a narrower academic discipline, though philosophers still continue to seek answers to life’s most important questions: How should I live? What can I know? Does God exist? Do numbers? What is the nature of language and the human mind? Of science and art? Of meaning, logic and truth?
The Department of Philosophy offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. The course of study is designed to provide students with a critical background in logic and argumentation, as well as an extended introduction to some of the most important philosophical themes and traditions from ancient to contemporary times.
