Department of Philosophy

Advisor Office: 402 CTIHB [Map]

A Major in Philosophy is not primarily a vocational or technical program, as concentrations in business or engineering might be. Instead, it offers a wide range of opportunities for intellectual growth and selfdevelopment to students with a variety of interests. This major is for those individuals seeking an understanding of themselves, our cultural heritage, and the important issues concerning life, knowledge, and values. Our program in Philosophy will provide a broad based understanding of the central problems 4 and positions in philosophy, in each of the central areas of philosophy, including ethics and value theory, metaphysics and epistemology, the history of philosophy, and logic and formal methods. A Philosophy Major can serve as the core of a strong liberal education.
