Introduction

The Philosophy major is designed to provide depth and breadth in the study of philosophy, emphasizing the skills of logical reasoning, analytic reading, effective writing, ethical reasoning, and the focused study of the history of western philosophy and fundamental conceptions of human nature and human practices. The major is also flexible so that students can take courses of interest to them. Courses in the philosophy major allow students to gain useful conceptual tools, increase their flexibility of mind, and improve their ability to view issues from multiple perspectives. Philosophy is one of the best pre-law majors; philosophy majors typically do extremely well in admission tests to graduate and professional schools.

The philosophy major stresses learning goals that enable students to achieve the skills deemed essential by employers, powerful critical thinking and communication skills. Because the major is organized around learning goals, students know exactly why they are taking each class. As they explore philosophy, they also see that each class helps them become college graduates who possess knowledge and skills valued by employers and professional and graduate schools.
