Offered by the Philosophy department.

Philosophy is offered as both a major and a minor. Philosophy majors do well on standardized tests (like the LSAT, MCAT, and GMAT) and employers value their ability to write analytically and solve problems creatively. Philosophy majors acquire the kinds of skills necessary for success not only in life but in an ever-changing, global economy.
