What is the meaning of humanity? Of freedom? Of good and evil? Challenge your values to strengthen them. Examine your life to fulfill it.


Philosophy defined is "love of wisdom." For our students and faculty this love—this pursuit—of wisdom is a calling. A passion and a journey that lasts a lifetime as knowledge is attained, realities are understood and personal worldviews alter.

Philosophy will prepare you for life, both personally and professionally. It drives personal growth, allowing those who study it to lead richer lives, prepared to consider the different ideas and policies that compete for attention. And through reason and analysis, critical thinking, questioning assumptions and creative problem solving, you'll emerge ready for success in diverse fields such as teaching, law, medicine and business.
