Are you an intellectual thinker? Do you often ponder reality, existence and the differences between right and wrong? If yes, consider studying philosophy.
In this program, you’ll join a conversation that began thousands of years ago with Socrates and Plato. Your courses will explore topics such as ethics, logic, religion and modern philosophical questions. You’ll examine fundamental intellectual problems concerning reality, knowledge, reason and value; and you’ll explore how philosophers have attempted to solve these problems over the centuries.
If you would like to get a taste of what a Philosophy course might be like, then consider attending one of our biweekly online presentations that provide an introduction to Philosophy through the lens of popular culture and contemporary events. Past events have included "The Idea of Truth in a Post-Truth World" and "I'd Rather You Trust Me Than to Love Me -- Kendrick Lamar and the Meaning of Love." Here is a link to one presentation for example. Please email Dr. Steven Schoonover for dates and details if you are interested.
Philosophy provides an excellent background for careers in many fields—from law to teaching to economics. This pre-major program provides the general education requirements needed to transfer to a four-year university or college.
