|Field of Study:||Philosophy
|Description:||Philosophy is critical and creative thinking about fundamental questions, such as what is meant by a worthwhile life, what sense there is to the universe and what makes a just society. The program at the U of S provides systematic training in the analysis of these types of questions. It requires a willingness to consider both sides of a question and to test statements by raising possible objections from many points of view. A student in Philosophy learns to make careful distinctions, to see logical relationships and to argue rationally.
In fact, philosophy touches on almost every area of study, as all major developments in biology, economics, mathematics, physics and psychology started out as philosophical hypotheses. It is an especially beneficial area of study for students considering law, journalism, medicine, politics, theology or any other career that involves critical thinking, writing and skills related to communications or problem solving.
