Are you interested in the biggest questions of human existence: does God exist? What is the ultimate nature of the world we live in? What is the nature of right and wrong?

Do you find yourself drawn to debate or rational analysis? Do you often ask questions about how things work or why things are done the way they are? Do you find yourself interested in questions that are informed by a variety of different academic disciplines?

If any of this sounds like an accurate description, philosophy may be the major for you. The philosophy major is currently thriving (we now have a community of nearly 50 students in the major), but we still enjoy one of the best student-faculty rations of any major approximately 3 to 1. This means lots of individual attention, and plenty of opportunities for hands-on interaction and a personalized education.
