Welcome to the Philosophy Department!


Message from the Chair

Our philosophy department has a diverse faculty and offers the full range of courses necessary for the major or the minor over a four year span. We offer a religious studies option as well as a philosophy option in the major.

Many of our students take philosophy as a second major based on their passionate interest in the subject matter. Our department is committed to offering a balanced array of upper division courses with a focus on the history of philosophy.

As a major or a minor you can look forward to small classes with as much personal contact and attention from the professor as you desire.
