Philosophy Department First-Year Student Open House

Meet Philosophy Department faculty and other students interested in Philosophy and pick up syllabi of upcoming courses open to first-year students. Refreshments served.

Thursday, September 7, 2017
101, 107, and 210 Thornton Hall
Intended Audience(s): Faculty, Public, Students-Undergraduate

The Philosophy Department invites you to learn about our course offerings and our foreign study program in Edinburgh, Scotland. The study of philosophy is exciting on its own terms and it provides students with critical, analytical abilities to succeed in many fields of professional and academic work, as well as a basis for leading a richer, more contemplative life. Philosophers do not simply try to answer questions, they examine the questions themselves. Philosophy is the attempt to think clearly and precisely about the basic questions that we confront as individuals and as members of societies. Students can focus on particular areas within philosophy, such as ethics, law, medicine, art, science, mind and cognition, logic and mathematics, or the history of philosophy.

Refreshments served.
