Schools, Departments & Programs



Philosophy investigates fundamental questions about who we are, what we can know, how we should live, and what there is, as well as related foundational questions about mind and body, freedom and responsibility, justice and fairness, morality, logic, mathematics, language, the natural and social sciences, art, and religion. The curriculum of the Department of Philosophy (PHIL) can contribute to the intellectual training of all undergraduates and acquaint them with some of the most important developments in the history of ideas. Courses in the department emphasize clear and cogent thinking about fundamental problems, locate the origins of these problems in the writings of the great philosophers, and provide in-depth examinations of proposed solutions.

Prerequisites for courses may be waived with consent of instructor.
