Philosophy is the study of the most basic moral, legal, aesthetic, religious, and metaphysical ideas by which we pursue understanding and development of principles of conduct. Philosophers seek to establish standards of evidence, provide rational methods of conflict resolution, establish criteria for just social orders, and create techniques for evaluating ideas and arguments. A minor in Philosophy is intended to broaden students’ education and to complement and encourage critical and constructive reflection in other courses.
