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 critical thinking, critical reading, analytic writing, and effective speaking.


Western's Philosophy Club will be hosting the 2017 Northwest Student Philosophy Conference this weekend.

The 2017-18 Academic Year Schedule is now available.
