Philosophy investigates the fundamental principles of being, knowledge or conduct. There are numerous systems of philosophical discourse and the two-year program introduces students to many of these. Unless a student wishes to earn a Doctorate and teach at the college level, a Bachelor’s degree in philosophy is generally useful only in indirect ways. It can prepare students for graduate work in other fields such as law or theology, and the study of philosophy usually sharpens a student’s analytic skills.
