Philosophy students explore fundamental questions in logic, metaphysics, epistemology and ethics. Survey courses introduce students to a broad range of philosophical problems and techniques. Topical courses, such as philosophy of mind, ethics and social philosophy, allow for greater depth in the investigation of current topics and techniques.

The rigor and precision of philosophical thinking can serve as a model for work in other disciplines and can be invaluable in helping students clarify central issues of values and actions.
