Philosophy Major Guide

2017-2018

Mesa Community College

Philosophy majors explore the fundamental questions of human existence. Philosophy students will study the history of ideas and use them to understand how they contributed to contemporary problems. Issues in physics, biology, religion, art, and law are also examined. Students will learn to read more carefully, think more reflectively, and write more clearly so they can discuss and answer moral and ethical questions. Graduates with a philosophy degree will find work in advocacy, mediation, communications, education, or policy, and will also be well prepared for graduate studies.
