Although relatively few people become professional philosophers, the study of philosophy is a vital part of your college education.

Philosophy courses also have many side benefits, such as learning to:

  • Think deeply
  • Think creatively and critically
  • Analyze information
  • Communicate clearly, concisely and honestly
  • Analyze objectively
  • Organize efficiently
  • Communicate competently (both orally and in writing) and thoroughly
  • Research

All of these will help you in any endeavor, whether it's law, teaching, diplomacy, public service, publishing, journalism, the ministry, the social or natural sciences, mathematics, business or the arts.


  • Courses that include ethics, logic, world philosophy, religion, values and more.
  • Our philosophy program is built around the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree.
  • This degree gives you a solid two-year background in general education courses that can transfer to a four-year institution.
