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.
