Undergraduate Advising

What can I do with a Philosophy B.A.?
Many companies hire philosophy majors because they are interested in people who can think critically, write well, and communicate their ideas with clarity. The study of philosophy sharpens these marketable and transferable skills. Career possibilities lie in journalism, law, public administration, education, public service, not-for-profits, and graduate and professional schools.

A degree in philosophy prepares you for your next step - whatever it might be. Our rigorous and rewarding curriculum will introduce you to methods of thinking about the timeless questions of truth, beauty, perception, and justice. Analyzing questions such as 'What is reality?', 'Who am I?' and 'What is good?' facilitates analytical and problem solving skills while building a solid liberal arts background.

Major / Minor Requirements
The major in philosophy requires completion of 10 classes/30 credit hours in philosophy. A minor in philosophy requires 6 classes/18 semester credit hours (3 classes must be advanced hours).

What can I do with a Religion B.A.?
Many companies hire religion majors because they are interested in people who can not only think critically and communicate effectively but also who possess an understanding of global issues and who are capable of seeing the world from the perspectives of others. Career possibilities lie in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, including law, publishing, military, social service, teaching, and graduate and professional schools.

All of the religions examined are treated equally: this encourages open, thought provoking dialogue among other students and faculty members. You will acquire knowledge of multiple religious traditions while gaining outstanding spoken and written communication skills. The program's interdisciplinary approach allows you to choose courses in a wide variety of disciplines including philosophy, English, history, anthropology, sociology, political science, art education and music history.
