Philosophy Department

Philosophy majors at Clarke University have a proven track record for developing strong problem-solving, critical-thinking, organizational, communication and analytical skills — the skills most sought after by many of today’s employers. Our philosophy department is student-focused from start to finish. There is an intimacy of learning that extends beyond the classroom, a genuine rapport between students and faculty and a positive and fun outlook about the rigor of study. Our philosophy professors have personally financed recognition awards which are given annually to their two most deserving students. This across-the-board commitment explains why our philosophy faculty and classes — which are required of all students — are among the most popular on campus.
