|Philosophy is the quest for a comprehensive understanding of human existence. In your classes, you’ll explore the rational justification of logical inferences, human values, the criteria for establishing claims of knowledge and truth, and the interpretations of the nature of reality. You’ll study ancient and modern philosophers, from Socrates and Plato to John Locke and Immanuel Kant.
As a philosophy major, you’ll learn to analyze problems and to think and write clearly. This solid academic foundation prepares you for graduate programs in law, medicine, theology or another advanced field. In fact, philosophy majors receive some of the highest scores nationally on the LSAT exam, second only to math/physics majors.
At ONU, you’re guaranteed to learn just as much outside the classroom as you do inside. You can attend national academic conferences, engage in internships, undertake independent studies or assist professors with research. You can play sports, perform with a musical ensemble or join a social club.
