Undergraduate Degree Program

Philosophy & Religion

Why am I here?
What is my purpose in life?
How and where do I find meaning in a complex and ever-changing world?
What do I value — and why?
What factors affect my choices and decisions?
How do societies and individuals develop the capacity for judgment and action?

Explore these perpetual questions as a major in philosophy and religion at Albertus Magnus College. In consultation with your AMC faculty mentor, you’ll design your program of study to pursue a particular question or area of significant interest to you. Through the study of Western philosophy, world religions, modern philosophy, moral choice and the variety of Christian experience, you’ll build the solid foundation needed to pursue your vocation in a wide range of professions, including education, business or law.

You are also encouraged to expand your capacity for critical thinking, for recognizing and reflectively engaging multiple perspectives and for rigorously examining your own thoughts and beliefs. In addition, you’ll develop the ability to investigate and discuss the truth of opinions expressed in philosophical and religious texts, explore contradictions, and articulate and sustain a well-conceived position.

In small and lively classes, our friendly, accessible AMC faculty members offer the one-on-one attention and support that helps you succeed.

Combine your major in another field with a minor in Philosophy, a minor in Religion, a minor in Philosophy and Religion or the interdisciplinary minor in Peace and Justice Studies.
