Philosophy Major

The Department of Biblical &Theological Studies is proud to present its newest major!

The philosophy major is designed to develop capacities and desires for careful thinking about fundamental questions regarding the world and life. Engage in extended critical conversations regarding others' worldviews, the truth of basic beliefs and logical relations between beliefs.

Rooted in a background of historic Christian theology, in particular the basic truth that God is acting according to plan for His purpose in Christ, this major will give you intellectual abilities important for life as a whole, beyond the knowledge and skills required for any particular profession.
