What You’ll Learn
Philosophy students engage with the best minds in human history, and they learn to think and express themselves with clarity and precision—skills that apply to any profession.
Our Philosophy program helps you beyond preparing for law school, graduate school, or business school. You'll also develop fundamental problem-solving skills such as deep reading, rigorous thinking, and clear and concise writing.
"I couldn't have asked for a better academic experience than the one I received as a philosophy major at Brockport. I consistently felt both challenged and supported by the department's knowledgeable and accessible faculty, which was exactly what I needed to grow as a writer, critical thinker, and person. As a grad student going for my PhD in philosophy, I frequently find myself thinking about how grateful I am for the quality preparation I received for graduate work during my time at Brockport."Mark Satta, PhD Student, Purdue
