The philosophy major at Saint Joseph’s University will foster your ability to think logically, evaluate arguments, communicate effectively, examine assumptions and live an intellectually rich and ethically engaged life. Courses emphasize an interactive approach to learning. Our faculty believes discussion and feedback is of paramount importance.
You have the option of pursuing one of five tracks: history of philosophy; social-political/philosophy of law; philosophy of mind, language, science; philosophy of religion; and arts and humanities.
The major requires only eight courses beyond the two Saint Joseph's University general education program courses in philosophy. Many pursue double majors, thereby exploring the many connections between philosophy and other areas of inquiry.
