The Department of Philosophy and Religion is dedicated to helping students acquire the skills which are central to a first-rate liberal arts education. Among those skills are the ability to express ideas effectively, appreciate great works in philosophy, and to make reasoned, thoughtful, and compassionate judgments in the complex and diverse world in which we live. The department encourages students to apply these skills to current issues relevant to their lives, and it is dedicated to creating a supportive learning environment that helps students to mature intellectually and emotionally.
The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers small and engaging classes, and provides excellent advising and support for each individual student. On this web-page you will find information about available courses, about faculty members and current students, together with a sampling of the successes some of our former students have had.
