The Department of Philosophy and Religion introduces students to the great philosophical ideas and traditions.
Students engage with timeless questions about the meaning of life, how to be ethical and the nature of reality itself
— but they also use philosophy to solve contemporary, real-world problems. A major or minor in philosophy can be
helpful to students considering law school, medical school or graduate school in a wide variety of fields, and is
easily combined with other majors and minors. Above, associate professor Steven Geisz leads students through
qigong exercises during a May Term course on Chinese yoga and meditation.
