Philosophy and Religious Studies
The curriculum of the philosophy program is designed to contribute to the intellectual training of all undergraduates and to acquaint them with some of the most important developments in the history of ideas. Courses in the program emphasize clear and cogent thinking about fundamental problems, locate the origins of these problems in the writings of the great philosophers, and provide in-depth examinations of proposed solutions. The department also offers courses in ethics designed for business and medical students.
