Philosophy

Major, Minor

Degree: Bachelor of Arts

Philosophy is the study of the most fundamental questions one could ask: What are good and evil? What is reality and what is illusion? Are our choices really free? What does it mean to be moral, and why should one bother? Indeed, what is the meaning of life?

You will explore these profound questions and more at Union in a breadth of courses with faculty known for their scholarship and for being accessible and supportive. They will encourage your development of skills in critical and abstract thinking, writing and the evaluation of different points of view. You will enjoy wide-ranging conversations, debates, research and presentations as you probe the mysteries of human existence.
