A Philosophy minor has significant value, particularly in the context of Christian liberal arts and sciences. The study of philosophy helps students to probe beyond the obvious, to recognize presuppositions, and to analyze assumptions. Because of its emphasis on rational argumentation and logical precision, philosophy also helps develop a student’s thinking and writing skills—necessary skills for success whatever the student’s degree program. A minor in Philosophy is an excellent complement for majors in English, History, and Christian Studies, and is also valuable to students considering careers in law, business, ministry, and other fields of social service.
