Philosophy

The Philosophy Department ushers students in their quest for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the complexity and richness of human existence.  It seeks to develop students who possess thoughtful and discerning way of life by guiding them to reflect on the taken-for-granted assumptions about God, Good, Truth, Nature, Beauty and Human Self.  Inspired by the Ignatian ideal of being persons for others, it also aims to form students who are imbued with the commitment to work for the common good and social justice.

The Philosophy Department offers undergraduate and graduate programs.  These programs intend to form well-rounded students who are critically aware of the nature, history, global issues and current debates within the realm of philosophy as well as effectively able to integrate their different learning experiences into a meaningful totality.  It seeks to produce graduates who, depending on their chosen endeavor—whether as lawyers, teachers, business people, or public servants, among others—are discursive, critical, discerning, ethical agents of social  change.
