More about our Undergraduate Programs

  • BA in Philosophy
    A major in philosophy enables students to gain a fuller understanding of the range of subjects included in philosophy. It also permits students to concentrate on subjects and problems which they find most interesting. The undergraduate major is a good preparation for graduate study in philosophy. It is also helpful in preparing for a variety of other careers, including professional careers like law.
  • Minor in Philosophy
    The study of philosophy fosters skills that are useful in virtually any field of study: the abilities to organize ideas, to assess the pros and cons of an issue, to evaluate arguments and to reason effectively.
