As a student in MSU's philosophy program, you will learn to analyze complex arguments by identifying assumptions in classical and contemporary debates and tracing the origins of those views back into the history of ideas.

Our program emphasizes flexible, independent thinking. Our graduates are trained to read critically, construct strong and logical arguments, and express thoughts clearly through both speech and writing.

Within the philosophy program, you will take courses in the philosophy of religion, the meaning of life and philosophy and death.



These programs are offered at the Morehead campus.
