University Majors


University of California, Santa Cruz
Philosophy B.A.

Philosophy inquires into assumptions about and theories of the most basic facets of rational thought, e.g., what to believe (epistemology), what is (metphysics), what to value (morality). Such questions can be studied by looking at answers that contemporary philosophers propose, by investigating the principles that other disciplines use to legitimate claims, or by learning how historically philosophers approach these issues.The department offers courses that relate traditional philosophical questions to contemporary work in linguistics, literature, and the social, physical, and biological sciences. In addition, the department offers several courses that make a careful study of the classic texts in philosophy, ancient and modern.
