Department of Philosophy

The core of a liberal education

The Department of Philosophy challenges students to think, to listen, and to inspire others as they learn from the teachings of classical and contemporary philosophers.


Philosophy is a discipline that challenges students both to reflect on their own biases and presuppositions and to put order into their thoughts. It provides a unique stimulus to thought and reflections upon human experience. Learn more about our programs of study »
