College of Humanities & Social Sciences

The Department of Philosophy

The department offers a variety of courses in traditional areas of philosophical study, including ethics, epistemology, logic, metaphysics, and the history of philosophy.Through a collaborative study of these topics, our faculty helps students develop skills that we value as a department - skills like active reading, critical thinking, analytic writing, and effective speaking.
