Philosophy & Religion
Question, Analyze, Create
Philosophy — traditionally at the center of the liberal arts — asks some of the most difficult and searching questions about human existence, the nature of the universe, right and wrong in human conduct, and the basis of our social and political arrangements.
In so doing, it gives the mind leeway to doubt, analyze, criticize, and create. Philosophy by nature tends not to generate textbook answers. It can aid in putting questions on the nature of oneself, life, and reality into coherent and nuanced perspectives.
We do not just prepare you for a ‘job.' Philosophy and Religion scholars learn to exercise good judgement and live life well in whatever they do. As a result, our grads go into dozens of professions, equipped to create a life of purpose and interest.
