Prospective Student


Students become part of our department because they’re curious.

They question philosophical areas ranging from:

  • metaphysics (“Is everything material?”)
  • aesthetics (“What makes something beautiful?”)
  • ethics (“What makes an action right?”)
  • logic (“What distinguishes good reasoning from bad?”)

And they can’t get enough debate.

They join us because they know we teach students critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills that will allow them to do whatever they want to do professionally.

And they join us because our innovative, collaborative environment helps prepare them to be versatile, self-motivated, deadline-driven professionals.
