Philosophy

Philosophy students learn how mankind’s greatest and most profound thinkers have answered basic and perennial questions about human life, such as mortality, our knowledge of the world, the existence of God, the relation between mind and body, and the conditions of a just society. Thiel’s philosophy curriculum provides a foundation in all the traditional areas of philosophy and is specifically designed to develop your ability to create your own well developed philosophical position. Above all, a philosophy major pursues and appreciates critical, independent reasoning.

By studying philosophy at Thiel College, you’ll be able to:

  • Become a “thinker” – you’ll learn the skills of extracting the principal points from complex material, evaluating the soundness of the arguments involved and justifying your position on any given topic
  • Work with dedicated professors in a supportive and challenging atmosphere
