Philosophy

Marymount’s B.A. in Philosophy program invites students to ponder the perennial questions of human existence and their impact upon ethical behavior of the individual and society. Ethics and values are emphasized across the curriculum, and this is a Marymount University distinction.

The study of Philosophy promotes rational and critical thinking and provides an understanding of the intellectual traditions of the ancient, medieval, and modern periods. Marymount Philosophy majors develop an awareness of the role of reason in creating personal worldviews and become engaged with the board array of issues central to human existence. Students will become acquainted with the intellectual foundation of much of Western culture and find opportunity to compare it to the tenets of other cultures. Students will also learn to analyze problems using a variety of methods.

This major provides an excellent foundation for careers in law, education, business, and public policy.
