A grounding in the religious ideas and philosophical concepts that have informed so much of the world's history and culture can form the basis for almost any career path, from social work to business to law. The study of logic, ethics, or depth psychology, for example, prepares students for responsible and effective roles in a variety of life situations -- from the boardroom to the classroom. It's not surprising that students from our other schools often choose to take courses or to minor in the discipline.
Majors are available in philosophy or in philosophy-religion, with minors offered in philosophy and religious studies. You'll not only gain a broad knowledge of fundamental concepts, but you'll also develop your creative and critical skills and be challenged to articulate your own ideas through a dialectical process.
