Minor in Philosophy

The Philosophy minor will provide students with skills that will enhance their academic performance whatever their major course of study and whatever their career aim. The hallmark of philosophy is the attempt to think with rigor and clarity about difficult and enduring questions: Who am I? What can I know? How should I act? In coming to understand and think philosophically about such questions, students develop the ability to think more clearly and deeply about any question. So, the study of philosophy, in itself often abstract and theoretical, pays dividends of the most practical sort, enabling the student to do whatever s/he chooses to do, better. Moreover, the philosophy minor gives the student’s academic record something distinctive, which is attractive to potential employers.
