University Majors

California Polytechnic University, Pomona
Philosophy B.A.

The Philosophy Department at Cal Poly Pomona has organized its programs to meet both the abstract and the practical philosophical interests of its students. Our programs allow students to pursue the traditional questions about the nature of truth, knowledge, justice and reality while examining the relevance of these questions to the problems of contemporary society.

The Major fosters the critical thinking skills involved in careful analysis and reasoning, as well as the synthetic skills involved in attempting to achieve the best broad view possible within a distinct area of inquiry (for example, in the natural sciences or in cognitive science) or in general. Such skills in reasoning and synthesis are crucial in a wide range of professions; in fact, such high level cognitive skills are often precisely what employers value most.
