Philosophy (Minor)


  • CAS students in Trinity Sweatshirts What can we know?
  • What must we do?
  • What can we hope for?

In order to answer these and other questions, our philosophy program examines and explores the ways in which we know (or claim to know) things. The study of philosophy takes curiosity, imagination and the ability both to “see the big picture” and to think about the big questions. In our philosophy courses, therefore, students practice their analytical skills and hone their ability to abstract clear meaning from a text.

This program serves students well for careers in law, government service and graduate school in any of the social sciences or humanities.
