Philosophy

Questions that don’t have easy answers arise in every career and every industry. Studying philosophy gives you the tools necessary to ask and pursue them. In the Department of Philosophy, faculty members prepare you to present complex ideas clearly, evaluate opposing viewpoints, and craft careful and creative arguments. In addition to teaching students to think critically, philosophy challenges you to examine the ethical contours of everyday life. Whether studying accounting and finance or communications and management, the study of philosophy is crucial to developing the well-balanced, responsible leaders of tomorrow.
