Program Description:

Philosophy deals with the questions raised by people as they attempt to understand life and the world in which they live. Our philosophy courses explore ways of thinking about those questions by using the writings of philosophers -- past and present -- as guides and challenges. Philosophy examines methods of logical argumentation and critical thinking, particularly as they apply to moral issues and to ultimate issues such as the meaning of life and the reality of God.
