When you study philosophy, you enter a new way of thinking about yourself and the world. Our degree program offers the opportunity to examine the deep questions of human existence, such as:
- What does it mean to live a good life?
- How should a person live?
- Are we free?
- What is the self?
- What is the nature of reality?
- How are individual and community related?
- What is justice, and can we create a truly just society?
- How should humans interact with the natural world?
- What is knowledge?
- What can be known and when do we have good reason for our beliefs?

Many employers like to hire philosophy majors because they have a reputation for being flexible, clear thinkers and good writers. Philosophy combines well with all other majors, so you can study philosophy and whatever else interests you.
