Philosophy

Academic Department

The Department of Philosophy introduces students to philosophical issues in human life and cultivates their ability to apply philosophical methods to intellectual, moral and social problems. The study of philosophy develops a critical mind, a balance of analytic and interpretive skills, and a capacity for the development of abstract formulations and their concrete application in human society.

Our graduates have completed advanced degrees in philosophy, international relations, management, theology and psychology and pursued successful careers in law, teaching, business, counseling, publishing, government and social service.

Programs
