Academic Minor in Philosophy

What is the meaning of life? What is justice? Does God exist? What is truth? What is reality? These are the profound questions of life. These are the questions that the philosophy minor requires you to think deeply about as you are engaged in constructing a meaningful life philosophy. In addition, the practice of philosophy involves rigorous analysis of concepts and arguments. A philosophy minor is an excellent choice for developing foundational skills in problem solving, communication, persuasion, writing, and creativity.
