Course Information

The Philosophy program at Saint Francis University is focused on expanding and honing critical thinking skills so that you can read, write, and think with a critical eye to the world and self. Our courses offer a comprehensive study of the history of philosophy and its various disciplines, with a focus on ethics.

Upon successful completion of the minor, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate a grasp of the major philosophical questions as they relate to contemporary problems and issues;
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the basic techniques and principles of logic and critical reasoning (i.e., how to construct, critically analyze, and assess arguments; how to construct counterarguments; fallacies of reasoning);
  • Demonstrate the ability to articulate in writing and speech the practice of good argumentation and philosophical debate
