Philosophy has a unique place among the liberal arts for the ways in which it fosters the intellectual and moral growth of the student. In particular, the discipline of philosophical thinking elevates the mind by instilling a spirit of wonder and criticism, and serves to illumine and reflect upon the meaning of life itself. In the adage of William James, “philosophy ought to make a difference” in the way we understand and live our lives. To fulfill this promise the Philosophy Department combines two fundamental courses with a broad variety of electives allowing students to pursue topics tailored to their interests and fields of specialization.
