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.

In addition, students have the option to enroll in Walsh's new 4+1 Program for non-business majors who would like to supplement their bachelor's degree with an MBA. Through the program, students simultaneously earn undergraduate and graduate credit for Walsh's MBA Prep Series courses, saving both time and money as students pursue their advanced degree.
