What is philosophy?
In studying philosophy, you’ll become a participant in a conversation that extends back to the Ancient Greeks and the Vedic Scriptures. You’ll acquire the ability to think systematically and imaginatively about fundamental and enduring issues such as morality, justice, beauty, gender, race, nature, artificial intelligence, space, time, and the meaning of life and death. Combine the minor in philosophy with a major such as business, history or science to bring rigorous thinking and clear communication skills to your future career or graduate studies.
