Our Philosophy major provides you with opportunities to dive deeper into the core areas of philosophy, including ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, the philosophy of mind and language, aesthetics, and more. The Philosophy major can be combined with the Business Studies major or Business Studies minor, preparing you for both a successful career and an examined life.

We also are the home department of the Ethics and Social Responsibility concentration in the Liberal Studies major. Students in the Ethics and Social Responsibility concentration take three or four courses in philosophy, with a focus on ethics, especially in the business world. It is thus a perfect companion to a major in business at Bentley.

Regardless of the course of study you choose, in your Philosophy courses you will engage with classic works by luminaries such as Plato and Aristotle, and see how their insights apply to contemporary problems. That may be reason enough for you to take philosophy courses at Bentley.
