at Saint Joseph's College
The study of philosophy offers students an opportunity to investigate, in the broadest systematic way, fundamental questions about reality, truth and value. Further, the discipline of philosophy promotes serious and sustained reflection upon the formation and application of ideas. The study of philosophy consequently offers immediate, practical use in addition to its well known life-long value.
The philosophic skills of thinking clearly, organizing coherently and analyzing insightfully will help students in all disciplines meet their goals. Philosophy courses are designed to meet the needs of three classes of students: a) those wishing to approach liberal education through philosophy; b) those desiring an intensive study of philosophy preparatory to graduate study in some other field, e.g., law, theology, medicine or education; and c) those seeking preparation for a career as teacher or writer in philosophy.
