Philosophy's Best For Grad School

Religion and Philosophy Department

The Philosophy major is housed in the Department of Religion and Philosophy that offers both major and minor programs in Philosophy and Religion. Through these programs, the department seeks to provide inquiry into the ideas, beliefs and values that have shaped human history. Steeped in the liberal arts and consistent with the mission of the University, departmental programs offer opportunity for students to engage in critical thinking while cultivating the growth and development of the whole person.

In the last 14 years:

  • 65.5% of Religion majors have gone on to attend graduate programs
  • 56% of Philosophy majors have gone on to attend graduate programs

You can join the Religion and Philosophy faculty for lunch in the back room of the Cafe on the first Wednesday of each month. They will be there to meet and talk with you about anything religion or philosophy related from 12-1PM on October 2nd, November 6th, and December 4th.
