You will think critically and rigorously about life: What is the meaning of life? How should I behave? How do faith and intellectual inquiry intersect? What makes a society just?

Tackle the Big Questions

Studying philosophy enables you to understand the foundations of your culture. Who are we, what shaped us and why do we see things as we do? Most philosophy students begin their studies thinking they may be the only ones who have ever pondered these questions, but they graduate knowing they have been participating in an ancient discipline that has shaped human experience.
