B.A. in Philosophy

Philosophers seek wisdom by asking fundamental questions about what there is (metaphysics), what we can know (epistemology), what kinds of people we should be (ethics), what is beauty (aesthetics), and how we should reason (logic). A major in philosophy will help students to develop critical reading and thinking skills to answer some of life’s most difficult questions.

Otterbein University’s philosophy program prepares students go on to graduate or professional schools, usually in law, medicine or business. It also is a good background for many careers, including teaching, nursing, art, communication, psychology and music.
