- Major: Philosophy and Psychology
I chose to major in philosophy because it tackles the big questions in life. In philosophy, you are never expected to accept anything as true just because somebody says so. It is up to the individual to judge what is true by reason rather than deferring to an authority figure for the answer.
Philosophy is a unique major. It emphasizes skills relative to any field, including logic, creativity and research, and it particularly offers exceptional preparation for further study in law, medicine or business, as well as a host of other fields. Our philosophy program provides the fundamentals - the ability to objectively analyze, efficiently organize, competently communicate and thoroughly research. These skills, enhanced by our focus on personal attention from professors trained at world-class colleges and universities, will contribute to your marketability, especially in a day and age when frequent career change is the tendency.
