Open your eyes to ideas you didn’t even know existed. With a philosophy degree from Susquehanna University, you’ll learn to analyze, write, persuade and examine both sides of an argument — developing critical thinking skills to improve yourself and the world around you.
Philosophy knocks at the door of the soul. Susquehanna prides itself on offering the rare combination of classical philosophical training with innovative, contemporary and diverse course offerings. You’ll learn from experienced faculty members who represent a broad range of backgrounds, including first-generation college students, people of color and feminists. You and your classmates will engage in fundamental questions about reality, knowledge and value as part of an interdisciplinary intellectual life led by Susquehanna faculty working across several disciplines.
Philosophy graduates have many career options including business, law, medicine, journalism, finance and computer science with one of the fastest salary growth rates.
