In the Classroom
A student can major or minor in philosophy, take philosophy courses as part of other majors or minors, and study philosophy in Hofstra University Honors College or the First-Year Connections program.
About the Department
In the Department of Philosophy at Hofstra University, students examine fundamental issues such as the nature of truth, justice, existence, goodness, beauty, and knowledge.
A philosophy degree trains you to be a creative problem solver, who can analyze and synthesize complex information. Philosophy emphasizes not only critical reasoning, ethical reasoning, clear and organized writing, and examining assumptions, but encourages one to "think outside the box."
