Many philosophical texts are quite difficult, and ASU’s BA in Philosophy courses will teach you how to read, comprehend, and summarize conceptually difficult material. In short, studying philosophy trains you to be a better, clearer thinker.
Course work includes the major subfields of philosophy such as metaphysics, epistemology and ethics as well as electives that connect philosophy to other areas of inquiry and that emphasize the social relevance of philosophy. You will also be required to complete a senior capstone project, in which you will be able to select from the following topics: Rationalism, Empiricism, Contemporary Analytic Philosophy, Advanced Symbolic Logic, and Topics in Philosophy.
As a graduate from the Philosophy program, you will be well prepared for leadership roles in whatever path you take, whether it be in business, law, politics, medicine or education.
