Alumni Perspective

“At TWU I was able to ask any question and be taken seriously by my professors. More than that, they gave me the tools to pursue answers for myself and then encouraged me on that journey. The training in philosophy I received at TWU helped to shape and prepare me for my graduate studies at Oxford.”
