This program provides a structured system of study for students seeking an associate degree in philosophy or transferring to a four-year university program in philosophy. The discipline of philosophy provides students with not only a historical understanding of human culture, but also with training in the art of thinking. Philosophy leads students to develop the ability to comprehend, analyze, and reason about abstract ideas, and this ability carries over to everyday life and future careers. Philosophy majors do very well in admission to law and medical schools. Philosophy majors are eligible for the same careers as other liberal arts majors, and the major serves as a sound basis for specialization in other disciplines. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the study of philosophy can have a considerable impact on the student’s personal life.
