Philosophy, which means literally “the love of wisdom,” investigates and examines various views about the principles that underlie thought, conduct, and the nature of reality.
Learn about the great thinkers of the philosophical tradition from the ancient Greeks to the present, who ask the great timeless questions about the meaning of God, life, and what it means to be a thoughtful human being.
In the timeless search for meaning and truth, philosophy explores the foundations upon which belief and behaviour are built. Because philosophy is concerned both with what humans have thought and with how humans think, students not only receive excellent skills for understanding and evaluating ideas, but also obtain a strong perspective on the importance of ethics, how humans comprehend the universe, and the need to provide arguments which are logical, consistent, and clear. This intensive study prepares them for several career opportunities, including law, business, teaching, and government.
