Undergraduate Philosophy Degrees

Philosophy is the careful, critical, and reasoned engagement with fundamental questions of human existence. Philosophy addresses questions that human beings have always asked, though they may not have final answers. It asks about the limits of human knowledge, the nature of existence, values and morality.
