The department, through a varied and extensive program of courses, presents students with past and present attempts to think critically and reflectively about fundamental questions of knowledge and value in order that they will be led to examine their own views. The study of philosophical problems in the spirit of free inquiry requires the student to develop and exercise the powers of precise discrimination, creative imagination, logical organization and evaluative judgment.

The Department sponsors an annual colloquium series and a biennial conference. Our colloquium events can be found on the events calendar. For further information about our  conference, be sure to visit our conference page.
