Philosophy poses some of the most pressing questions in our lives, such as: What is reality? How do I know what I know? What is consciousness? What does it mean to live “the good life”? Is life free or determined? What is the meaning of life?
While exploring these questions, students will become acquainted with various fields within the philosophic tradition - metaphysics or the philosophy of reality; epistemology or the philosophy of knowledge; axiology or the philosophies of ethics, aesthetics, society and politics, and of course logic - that human beings both ancient and modern have developed in their attempts to seek answers.
Successful philosophy majors acquire a foundation for critical thinking and effective communication in a variety of professional areas, from education and research to law, journalism, government, business, psychotherapy and counseling. While careers in these fields most often require further, specialized training, graduates with philosophy degrees are adept problem-solvers capable of organizing complex information and reaching reasoned solutions. These skills make them invaluable across professional fields.
