Minor in Philosophy

About the Program

Tackle life’s biggest questions as a Philosophy minor. Philosophy and the liberal arts not only provide an inquiry into every dimension of human life, but they teach techniques that can be applied to problems in any field or endeavor. The ability to systematically question relationships between fields of study, one’s personally held beliefs, and worldview is significant and should serve to deepen an understanding of the meaning of human existence. Through these courses, you will be able to recognize assumptions, think logically, solve complex problems, and understand both sides of an argument.
