Department of Philosophy
Philosophy is an exciting and challenging discipline because it focuses on some of the deepest and most intractable questions humans face: Is there any objective standard of moral rightness? Does God exist? Do humans have free will? The methods philosophers use to tackle these questions – imaginative “thought experiments” and rigorous analysis of arguments – help students to build skills that are essential to a liberal arts education. The department has an accomplished faculty that is dedicated to undergraduate teaching. We offer a comprehensive major as well as wide range of introductory courses that allow non-majors to explore philosophy.
