Course info

Summary

Philosophy majors read and discuss ideas generated by some of the greatest thinkers in history and learn to examine contemporary theoretical problems from a philosophical perspective. Noted for its treatment of philosophy in a global context as well as its engagement with issues reflecting its Silicon Valley setting, the Department of Philosophy offers classes taught by faculty recognized and highly regarded for both teaching and scholarship. Our curriculum is equally strong in traditional and innovative areas of philosophy, such as feminist and applied philosophy, and we offer both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Because the study of philosophy develops a student's ability to analyze ideas and arguments, to think critically and to write well, a major in philosophy provides pre-professional training in a number of fields, including the fields of law, medicine, psychology and theology.
