BA in Philosophy

Philosophers ask big questions, critically explore a vast range of topics, and call into question established assumptions. Studying philosophy also offers surprising practical payoffs. The habits of mind that philosophy encouragesólogical precision, awareness of the assumptions undergirding any discussion, an attitude of both open-mindedness and responsible criticism toward new and unusual ideasócarry over to many other endeavors.
