Program Overview

Philosophy Built on Christian Principles

As a Christian university, Huntington is not a refuge from the contemporary world, but rather an arena for encounter with that world and creative response to it. We’ll help you make a critical and personal response to contemporary issues, and challenge you to think through the relationship between the Christian faith, your academic pursuits, your career goals, and your personal life.

If you want to develop habits of honest, clear, constructive, critical thought, please consider our Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. Our Philosophy Department will teach you to examine the basic assumptions on which all knowledge and beliefs are built, and discover how the world of ideas fits together.

Challenge Your Way of Thinking

As a philosophy major at Huntington University, you will be trained to think deeply and critically for a variety of different fields. You will grapple with the major issues confronting today's society in the light of the history of philosophical thought, the methods of philosophical analysis, and the Christian world and life view.

A philosophy degree is a good choice if you are looking forward to professional training in such areas as law and theology, or aspiring to a teaching career in philosophy. Students are well prepared for graduate school after their time at HU. There are numerous options for combining a major in philosophy with majors in other disciplines.
