Engaging students in critical and reflective thought.

Providing you with techniques of sound reasoning, philosophy majors go on to study law, medicine, religion, and are well prepared for applying to graduate school.

At Emory & Henry, our courses include ethics, argumentation and debate, techniques in reasoning, philosophy of religion, jurisprudence and political philosophy.

We offer both small classes and the opportunity for individualized study in our independent study, senior project, and honors courses.  Also, we make it easy for students to double-major in philosophy—only eight courses are required for a double-major in philosophy.
