Studying philosophy at Dordt means more than learning how to ask questions and debate ideas. You’ll develop through the exploration of questions about why people do what they do, what motivates them, and more.
What You'll Learn
You'll examine your basic assumptions, survey the history of philosophy, study a biblical basis for a reformational worldview, and discuss what it is to "know." You’ll also tackle intellectually challenging topics and ideas. Most important, you’ll learn how to thoughtfully apply scripture and your Christian faith into every aspect of your life.
What You Can Do With A Philosophy Minor
When it comes to what you can do with a philosophy degree, the answer is almost too broad to believe. Because of the critical thinking and reasoning skills you develop while studying philosophy, you’ll have an opportunity to continue your education and perhaps become a lawyer, a nonprofit administrator, a business manager, and numerous other fields.
