Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy

Engaging students is our philosophy. Small class sizes (as few as 12 students in some courses), collaborative group work, and supportive faculty mean you will have the chance to hear and be heard in the classroom. You will learn diverse methods of inquiry, flexibility, and adaptability. Our faculty will lead you in first-year seminars to explore topics such as friendship and social contract. We also customize independent study courses based on your very own interests and goals.

Our faculty-led programs in Poland and the Czech Republic will let you study human rights through a firsthand Eastern European perspective. You’ll have experiences you will never forget, such as a daylong visit to Auschwitz followed by a debriefing with experts. Back in the United States, you will have the chance to accompany your professors to professional conferences, such as the annual meeting of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy. You will also present your work at undergraduate research conferences in the region and at an annual scholarly research colloquium at UHart.

The possibilities are endless for philosophy majors upon graduation, and recent research from PayScale.com concludes that philosophy degree holders have a high earning potential due to their training in logic and critical analysis. Our recent graduates are doctors, attorneys, media relations professionals, legislative associates, and college administrators. We provide you with the intellectual foundation you need to succeed in whatever career path you choose—and in life.
