The Philosophy and Humanities department houses eight full-time faculty and a major and minor in philosophy, as well as minors in ethics and Religious Studies. A major or minor in philosophy challenges students to examine their societal and personal beliefs and values so that they are more creatively and responsibly chosen. Students who graduate with a bachelor of arts in philosophy acquire a well-rounded and liberal education with an emphasis on careful and critical thinking. A minor in Religious Studies deepens students' understanding of various religious traditions and their own religious beliefs and values. More details on all of these topics can be found by following the links to the left.
