Philosophy

About Our Program

Are you more interested in questions than answers? Do you want to learn to think carefully and well about life’s most compelling questions? If so, you might be a philosophy major! Our program is designed for you to complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree at CCD and transfer to a university to complete a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in philosophy.

In this program, you will learn to read, write and think critically about current issues and life’s enduring questions. As you progress through our highly interactive program, you will not only explore diverse worldviews but also hone your particular take on the world as well. In encountering both timeless works and new classics, you will wrestle with engaging moral dilemmas, explore the nature of reality, and contemplate the contrast between knowledge and belief. Throughout this process, you will cultivate critical reading, writing, and thinking skills that will apply to an endless number of careers, including law, politics, government, business, science and education.
