The study of philosophy works to clarify thinking about questions of fundamental importance, and to improve justification for given answers. We aim to promote student development as independent and critical thinkers and we guide students in their reflective engagement.
Philosophy is a preferred pre-law and pre-medicine major because it develops strong analytic and critical thinking skills. These transferrable skills are essential in other professions, such as information technology, journalism, banking, counseling, non-profit leadership, real estate, law, marketing, consulting, and business leadership.
