BA in Philosophy

The BA in Philosophy degree program is designed to provide students with an understanding and appreciation of the fundamental issues of philosophy, primarily in the Western philosophical tradition. It will lead students to think critically and creatively about the classic problems of philosophy within the context of a Christian worldview. The program should prepare graduates to enter a variety of academic and professional programs at the master's and doctoral levels. Philosophy can also be studied as a minor at LCU.
