Philosophy trains students to think both critically and imaginatively about topics that intersect ethics, law and policy. As a result, the study of philosophy confers a breadth of knowledge and develops reasoning and writing skills.

An undergraduate degree in philosophy is excellent preparation for post-graduate degrees such as law, medicine, business and ministry.
