About the Program

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.

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.
