Philosophy Undergraduate Programs

Philosophy majors are critically reflecting on the traditions we inherit, the values we embody, and the elements of a good life. They are rigorously questioning, and working to improve, the social institutions we inhabit and the methods we use to understand and evaluate those institutions. Philosophy majors are humanizing the life sciences: understanding their goals, respecting their patients, assessing their methods.

After graduating, Philosophy alumni are winning prestigious scholarships like the Rhodes and the Truman. They are surging into graduate and professional schools in Law, Medicine, Philosophy, and beyond. They are arguing cases before the US Supreme Court, teaching the next generation, and advocating for the disadvantaged. Philosophy alumni are entrepreneurs and employees whose integrity and critical thinking skills earn the trust and respect of colleagues and competitors.
