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?
Through examining such questions, you’ll develop creativity and critical thinking skills. 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.
