Philosophy at Providence College

Why Study Philosophy at Providence College?
Philosophy is about the big questions — questions about reality, the mind, and language; about knowledge, experience, and science; about freedom, ethics, and responsibility; about governance, law, and society; about race, gender, and sexuality — and many more besides.

We won’t tell you what to think about these questions — but we will help you to think for yourself, and to develop and defend your own answers to these questions in conversation with the great philosophers from the ancient world to the contemporary. In doing so, you’ll develop the kind of skills that make philosophy students so popular with employers, law schools, and graduate admissions committees.
