As a philosophy student, you will delve into a deep and diverse study of Western philosophy from a Christian worldview. You will learn to think logically and communicate clearly while you examine questions of knowledge, existence, reason, reality and values which provide a foundation for other disciplines. You can learn to answer the big questions in life as you grow in your love of wisdom.
Through the instruction of our distinguished professors, you will explore topics such as the history of philosophy, logic, ethics and epistemology (theory of knowledge) equipping you with a solid foundation of philosophical depth. You may also choose from electives such as apologetics, aesthetics (philosophy of art/beauty), philosophy of religion, existentialism, philosophy of science, metaphysics, philosophy of mind and history of medieval philosophy.
