This regular roundup features a selection of recent mentions of St. Lawrence University and its students, faculty, and staff in regional, national, and international media outlets.
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.
While passionate St. Lawrence students plan to their voices in the voting booth on November 3, faculty prompt them to engage with the issues they care about in the classroom. They're fostering productive discourse that promotes understanding across the political divide.
