Philosophy Degree

The term "philosophy" translates to "love of wisdom." People use philosophical lessons, beliefs and theories in their search to understand fundamental truths about themselves, the world in which they live, as well as their relationship to each other and to God.

People with intellectual curiosity, who tend to ask themselves "Why?" and feel a need to find the answers to complex questions, enjoy and flourish in Walsh University's Philosophy degree program.

Why Walsh?

Rooted in tradition. Our Philosophy degree is designed around the institutional commitment to Catholic values and beliefs. Consequently, our major emphasizes the Catholic identity of Walsh University.

Two Areas of Concentration. We have two tracks of study: Great Ideas, which explores the great philosophical traditions, and Applied Ethics, which is designed to help students address moral values across disciplinary boundaries.
