The Department of Philosophy offers courses leading to the degrees of bachelor of arts and master of arts. The department also offers an Ethics, Law, and Politics (ELP) specialization in the BA major and minor, and Ethics, Law, and Politics specialization in the MA, and an Ethics, Law, and Politics graduate certificate.

Philosophy is an appropriate area of study for those planning to enter a variety of fields, such as medicine, law, government, theology, literature, sociology, psychology, languages, education, administration, journalism, publishing, and business. The Ethics, Law, and Politics specializations are appropriate for students who plan to enter fields where ethical issues are central, students interested in fields connected to law and politics, and students who simply wish to deepen their understanding of ethical, legal, and political issues. The Ethics, Law, and Politics Graduate Certificate is appropriate for graduate students in fields of study other than Philosophy who wish to expand and ground their studies by considering ethical, legal, and political theories and issues.
