Philosophy | St. Lawrence University


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: What does it mean to live life well? What is reality? Do we really know anything, and if so, how?

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.
