The Philosophy program acquaints students with the history of philosophy, the world’s great philosophers, and basic schools of thought. Our program pursues such classic questions in the field as: What does it take to have knowledge? What is truth? What is the source of value? What is reality? What is the source of political authority? Philosophy is a subject that seeks an understanding of ultimate questions about the nature of reality, knowledge, and values. It engages reflective, critical reasoning and dialogue. The philosophy major at Asbury has an emphasis on the formation of a Christian worldview and a broad understanding of other views. An undergraduate major in philosophy serves as an excellent basis for graduate work in philosophical, theological, or divinity programs as well as other academic and professional programs. As a second major, it expands critical engagement with the first major and equips students with key analytical skills. Some career options open to philosophy majors include law, medicine, business, politics, government service, computer science, journalism, and writing. -
