In the Philosophy Department, we read, think, and write about the big questions: What is the right thing to do? What exists? What can we know? The department offers a Philosophy major and minor , and hosts the Liberal Studies major concentration in Ethics & Social Responsibility. All of these degrees can be combined with the study of business at Bentley.
