Philosophy Minor

About the Degree

Philosophy deals with basic questions from all areas of life and thought—science, religion, art, morality and politics—and helps students expand their knowledge base and refine their views on these subjects. Most importantly, philosophy teaches students how to think, how to analyze problems into their essential elements,  how to decide which proposed solution to a problem is supported by the best evidence, how to separate relevant from irrelevant points, and how to state issues clearly and precisely.

What You'll Learn

  •  A solid introduction to  Ethics, Biolmodeical Ethics or the concepts of the great political thinkers.
  • An understanding of both ancient and modern philosophy.
  • A survey of comparative religions, the philosophy of science and advanced topics in philosophy

This Minor is Great for You if:

  • You want to study philosophy in graduate school.
  • You're interested in law, medicine, theology, business, government and public service.
  • You're headed to a school of management or a theological seminary.
