“The unexamined life is not worth living.” – Socrates

When you study philosophy and religion, you gain a deeper understanding of the world. You learn how to examine the big questions of life, unravel complexities, think ethically and critically, and communicate ideas. These skills will help you achieve success in any field. Our department may be small in size, but we offer big opportunities and personalized attention. You will be taught and mentored by top scholars in the field whose specialties include ancient philosophy, professional ethics, philosophy of technology, computer ethics, Bible and world religions, to name a few. Our seven tenured and tenure-track professors are prolific researchers and writers, but above all, they are exceptional teachers.

Be Challenged

We offer four majors: philosophy; philosophy, politics and economics (PPE); religion; and youth ministry. Each program prepares you to be a future leader with rigorous academics and high impact learning.
