As a philosophy major, you will learn to think carefully about life's big questions: What is truth? Is there a God? What is the nature of morality? What is a just society? You will apply your answers to these questions to pressing contemporary issues in ethics and public policy, including ethical business practices, justice for women and minority groups, and medical ethics.
In Whitworth's philosophy major, you will explore connections between faith and reason, and between faith and the life well-lived. Along the way, you will gain transferrable skills in logical reasoning, problem-solving and expressive writing, and you will grow in intellectual virtues such as curiosity, humility and open-mindedness.
