Philosophy - Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

The B.A. major in Philosophy provides intellectual training by acquainting students 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. The major in philosophy leads to the BA degree and is flexible enough to meet the needs and interests of those who are not planning to become professional philosophers, as well as the needs and interests of those who do have such plans.
