Our faculty and students pursue the exciting, big questions that have always stimulated thinkers in different eras and cultures.
How should we live? What do we owe each other, or future generations? How should we reason, and weigh evidence? More deeply: What is it to be a person, or to be a citizen? What is it to think, to reason? New answers to these questions are always being proposed and debated; new questions are being asked too. Philosophy sparks your imagination and encourages you to look at yourself and your world in new ways. Philosophy provides you with the fundamental skills to think critically, communicate clearly, and to problem-solve effectively. So, no matter where you plan to go after your BA—academia, law, business, education, the arts—philosophy gives you the tools to succeed in whatever you choose to do next.
We look forward to thinking along with you!
