Philosophy is at the core of the liberal arts. Our program offers a wide variety of discussion based seminars in both Western and Non-Western philosophy. Working with primary texts, we help students to develop their critical thinking and writing skills. Our courses concentrate on issues which are relevant to students' lives such as how to live, the nature of justice, the role of reason and emotion in a good life and the meaning and role of art in our lives.
After graduation our students have gone on to graduate school, law school, the Peace Corps, non profit organizations and private industry.
