• Discussion between Philosophy professor and student
  • Philosophy, literally the "love of wisdom," leads us to ask questions about ourselves, our world, and what may lie beyond. In pursuing these questions, students enhance their abilities in analysis, self-reflection, argumentation and communication. Students of philosophy have many options after graduation; philosophy is excellent training for careers in law, politics, and business.
