About Philosophy

A Philosopher's Life

Many people believe that philosophy, as the pre-eminent liberal art, is worth studying for its own sake.

You might study philosophy because it helps you understand yourself, and other people, as you prepare for your career and life in the world. You might choose to major in philosophy simply because you enjoy thinking philosophically.

Whatever brings you to philosophy, our program allows you to pursue your academic interests - wherever they might lead.
