Philosophy

Area of Humane Learning

Updated Fall 2013

The philosophy minor supports the following goal of Milligan College:

Philosophy involves a thorough examination of the most fundamental questions facing human beings. At Milligan, courses in philosophy are designed to foster the ability to think critically and analytically, communicate clearly and logically, interact with the philosophic tradition, and explore the relationship between philosophy and the Christian faith. Courses in philosophy also aid students in acquiring the intellectual skills needed for integrating knowledge in all areas of human inquiry. As a result, the philosophy minor helpfully complements nearly any major in the liberal arts, offering additional training and experience in critical thinking. Students planning to attend seminary or law school are particularly encouraged to consider the benefits of a philosophy minor.
