Two Track Philosophy Major Begins this Fall
Students at Marywood University can earn an undergraduate degree in Philosophy through one of two programs-traditional and applied-beginning this fall. The traditional major in Philosophy is a stand-alone program, although the Philosophy Department encourages students to have a double major or pursue at least two minors to accompany the traditional major. The program in Applied Philosophy, which aims to broaden students' reflective and critical thinking skills as they apply to contemporary social concerns and issues, must be done as a second major. Michael A. Foley, Ph.D., Chair of the Philosophy Department and Acting Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, notes that a Philosophy major works well with majors in Religious Studies, English, History, Psychology, Biology, Business, or a foreign language, among other options, and can be applied to a broad range of career choices, including criminal justice, medicine, law, government, environmental science, business, public administration, education, nursing, journalism, and psychology.
