Programs in the Department of Philosophy are designed to give students a solid grounding in the historical development of philosophy and an ability to analyze the validity and soundness of arguments proposed in serious discussions of any subject. The emphasis in political and legal studies is designed for students planning to go to law school and students generally interested in social and political philosophy. The emphasis in religious studies is designed to assist the student in understanding the role of religion in human culture.
