Philosophy, Bachelor of Arts

At UNK, the Philosophy Program seeks to establish, nurture and preserve in our students a love of learning for its own sake; clear and independent thought that will be beneficial in any future vocation; and a thorough understanding of the ideas that shape human culture. Students engage in disciplined and imaginative thinking about the philosophical questions that arise naturally in the course of a liberal education. We do this through examining closely the original and primary works of philosophers and other writers. Reading the primary sources in philosophy, religion, and literature are at the heart of learning the foundations of our intellectual tradition.
