Prepare for a major in Philosophy by taking recommended courses to fulfill the requirements
of a transfer degree.
Philosophy seeks to answer fundamental questions about the nature of knowledge, reality, and existence and the connections between them using reasoning, logic and observation. Philosophy encompasses not only logic but a moral and ethical means of understanding the world. Philosophical methods include questioning, critical discussion, rational argument and systematic presentation. Students learn to examine theories or claims backed by reasoned arguments and reject, revise or retain those theories based on their logical merits.
