 The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers a B.A. or B.S. in Philosophy and in Religion.  The Department also offers minors in Ethics, Philosophy, and Religion.

As a core discipline in the liberal arts, the Philosophy program aims to produce individuals who are able to rationally examine fundamental questions about life, society, and the universe in the pursuit of knowledge, value, and wisdom.  The aim is that graduates will be proficient in the use of philosophical techniques of analysis and will be critical thinkers, capable of making sound judgments in the various areas of human inquiry.  

The Religion program seeks to produce students who are  analytical thinkers and articulate communicators in regard to the fundamental questions of life. The Department strives to develop students who have a critical understanding of a broad range of religious beliefs and phenomena observed in diverse traditions.  Furthermore, the Department’s mission is to prepare students for graduate school, professional careers and effective leadership.
