Why Major in Philosophy?

The philosophy degree at Liberty develops the whole person and will prepare you for a lifetime of problem-solving and critical thinking. When you major in philosophy, you'll gain practical skills in debate and dialogue.

Learn to think and write clearly, argue a position with good reasons, interpret new data, and offer creative solutions. Develop your mind as an original thinker – someone who can think outside the box. 

Our faculty spend quality time with our students, helping them to become practical problem-solvers. As a result, our students often go to top-tier graduate schools and are hired in all parts of industry, business, and ministry.
