Philosophy explores fundamental issues about truth, logic, ethics, and human nature. The ability to think carefully and logically is a skill that prepares you for success in any career by expanding your view of the world and helping you make sound, well-reasoned decisions.
Explore the sub-fields of philosophy such as aesthetics (the nature of beauty, definition of art), metaphysics (the nature of reality, what sort of things exist), epistemology (theories of knowledge), ethics (defining concepts of right action, obligation, justice), and logic (principles of reasoning). You’ll be sought after for your ability to analyze and discuss the important and difficult issues and problems of our time.
"Heidelberg's philosophy program taught much more than just the fundamentals. The program's rigor challenged me to think carefully, creatively, and critically about every problem I faced. Learning these skills has been invaluable, now, in law school, and I anticipate for years to come in my future legal career."
