Philosophy defined is "love of wisdom." For our students and faculty this love—this pursuit—of wisdom is a calling. A passion. A journey that lasts a lifetime as knowledge is attained, realities are understood and personal worldviews alter.
Philosophy prepares students for life, both personally and professionally. It drives personal growth, allowing those who study it to lead richer lives, prepared to consider the different ideas and policies that compete for attention. And through reason and analysis, critical thinking, questioning assumptions and creative problem solving, students emerge ready for success in diverse fields such as teaching, law, medicine and business.
