Why Study Philosophy?

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. It is distinguished from other manners of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument.

How We're Different Students engage perennial philosophical questions within small upper-level classes. Our students win summer research grants to explore pressing ethical issues. Students shape their philosophical education through individualized courses and directed studies. The Aquinas Philosophy Club extends philosophical conversations outside the classroom. Our students hone their arguments through public events, such as the newly inaugurated Disputatio, a debate series in the Dominican tradition, which offers an opportunity for students, exceptional scholars, and community members to discuss challenging moral issues in a serious yet collegial manner. Courses are offered in applied ethics, the history of philosophical thought, and the core philosophical areas, including: metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and logic. Students can pair their studies with other content areas including humanities and the sciences. Work with faculty who win teaching awards, are awarded national fellowships, and possess active research agendas. Our students move towards further study, such as philosophy graduate programs, medical school and law school.

Bachelor of Philosophy

Philosophy and Religious Studies are two different ways of approaching the most fundamental questions about human existence: How do we relate to the world around us? What can we be sure of? Is there some basic truth that holds all other truths together?

Philosophy has traditionally sought answers to these and other questions through the proper use of rational thought, the application of human intellect to the mysteries of the world around us.
