The philosophy program offers opportunities for engagement with historical and contemporary areas of philosophy and with the religious traditions of the world. We seek to enrich the educational experience of students at The University of Southern Mississippi by helping them to understand ideas and practices that have shaped our world, involving them in critical thinking about their own fundamental beliefs and values. For both students and the wider community, we seek to create learning opportunities that illuminate the ethical dimensions of professional activity and encourage thoughtful and responsible citizenship.
This major provides a strong grounding for students who are interested in pursuing graduate study in philosophy or religion. The major is also attractive to students who seek a broad liberal arts background in preparation for professional studies in fields such as law, medicine, theology, or business.
