Department Chair: Dr. Kirk McDermid

The Philosophy department aims to stimulate intellectual curiosity by engaging students in core philosophical questions through our courses and ambitious co-curricular programming. By training students in textual interpretation, conceptual analysis, and logical reasoning, we empower them to understand and assess the answers given by philosophers, as well as to examine their own beliefs and values. These philosophical investigations will educate our students in the theories and history of philosophy, and prepare them to become engaged citizens who think clearly about cornerstones of our society such as ethics, democracy, and truth.
