Engaging the World As Thinkers and Leaders

The department offers training in critical and reflective thinking that will help students explore the meaning of their existence and of contemporary local and global realities.   The department aims to teach students to think in a way that is grounded on theory allowing them to be sensitive to the depth and complexity of what they see.   The department, through its wide array of courses, teaches to students to understand things holistically, thus training them to lead with greater vision and insight.

Its program is an ideal preparation not only for those who intend to pursue further studies in Philosophy, Theology, and the Social Sciences, but also for those aiming for careers in law, development work, and writing, and in vocations that require insightful leadership.
