Course Information

Philosophy Program and Degree Overview

Your learning experience will be greatly enhanced by talented faculty who also are engaged in the study of philosophy.

CUC's full-time faculty members in the Department of History, Political Science, and Philosophy hold terminal degrees in their fields or are studying to complete one, and they have numerous years of teaching experience.

Philosophy courses include logic, ethics, philosophy of religion, social and political philosophy, the history of philosophy, aesthetics, and various thematic courses. The program culminates in an independent study course that requires the preparation of a major paper and public presentation on a selected philosophical topic. The philosophy minor requires 18 hours, but does not include an independent study.

For this major, you will take classes that advance critical thinking skills, discuss ethics and analyze different philosophical beliefs. Practical uses of philosophy include the nature of knowledge and relationships to reality and critical theories, which are used on a daily basis. Philosophy is highly interdisciplinary, relating to theology, history, political science, women’s and gender studies, and more.
