Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Philosophy

Philosophy examines the ideas and questions about the world—both about how it works and what people's place in it might be. 

The study of Philosophy focuses on truth and argumentation and challenges people's convictions about what is true and what is good.  

The department at St. Thomas University encourages a diverse approach to Philosophy and examines both historical and contemporary issues

The wide range of faculty expertise allows for a broad and deep exploration of the field, giving students a firm foundation of knowledge. 

Courses rely on the full texts of top philosophers—not summaries—and while this can be challenging, small classes create a collaborative and supportive learning environment for students.

What sets STU’s Philosophy Program Apart? 

  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate.
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.  
  • Students learn directly from the texts of top philosophers, not summaries.  
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in ethics, moral philosophy, logic, environmental philosophy, ancient Greek and roman philosophy, and earn modern philosophy. 

You might be interested in studying Philosophy if… 

  • You’re always asking questions
  • You are fascinated with puzzles and paradoxes
  • You want to tackle life’s biggest questions
