I came on an Open House date and fell in love with the campus. Meeting and speaking with the professors in the IT department was great, they had me hooked from the start.

Are you constantly seeking answers to life's mysteries? Always questioning assumptions and norms? Wanting to get beneath the surface, to explore deeper issues? Yearn for an intellectual challenge? Then you may want to major in philosophy.

At Curry College, we emphasize the importance of action, not just abstract thinking. Many of our courses are concerned explicitly with ethics in a number of different contexts, but every course will help you with the fundamental question: "What should I do?"

You will have the opportunity to explore and integrate both philosophical and religious interests into your class work. The two are not identical, but complementary ways of asking "the big questions."

Philosophy Careers

Employers rank critical thinking as their highest priority among skills that are increasingly important in the workforce of the future. Two-thirds of employers also identify ethics and social responsibility as increasingly important. A philosophy degree emphasizes exactly these skills!

Philosophy as a MAJOR

Philosophy concerns itself with matters such as the basis of right and wrong, the nature of human knowledge, the assumptions which underlie various forms of government, and the mystery of existence. Philosophy offers critical perspectives on the claims and presuppositions of areas such as science, psychology, art, and history. Knowledge of these perspectives will help students in almost any career, as they learn discipline in thinking, creativity in problem-solving, thoughtfulness in self-awareness, and a deep sense of humanity's efforts to understand its place in the universe.

Philosophy as a MINOR

Individually Initiated Major

The Curry philosophy and religion programs have much in common. It is possible for a student to combine them, either in an individually initiated major or in a philosophy major that includes a significant number of religion courses in the related areas as part of the major.

Get Started Today!
