Philosophy


To study Philosophy is to pursue the truth. It is a discipline which asks “why?” and probes for deeper answers. It requires an open mind and a desire to evaluate argumentation for its reasonableness. Philosophical investigation applies to every other discipline, from art to science, so whatever you plan to major in, Philosophy may be of interest to you. Those with a degree in Philosophy can find rewarding careers in social and community service, research, and in nonprofit organizations, museums, libraries and communications. A degree in Philosophy is also useful to those who choose to enter the clergy or go into counseling, teaching, law, business or writing.

In addition to the Student Core Learning Outcomes, the Program Specific Outcomes include:

• Demonstrate knowledge of a range of facts, terminology, events, and/or methods that social scientists in various disciplines must possess in order to investigate, analyze or give a history of, or predict human, group, or societal behavior.

• Demonstrate the ability to apply classifications, principles, generalizations, theories, models, and/or structures pertinent to social scientific efforts to organize conceptual knowledge in various fields.

• Demonstrate the ability to reach conclusions/make arguments across a range of social science topics that are tied to a defensible sifting of appropriate evidence relative to the questions involved.

• Demonstrate an understanding and recognition of the diversity of perspectives, cultural understandings, and ways of thinking that others bring to bear on social science questions.
