The WVU Philosophy Department is a vibrant, student-centered, undergraduate department. WVU philosophy majors have all the benefits of a small, first-rate, liberal arts college and all the advantages and resources of a major land-grant university.
Philosophy majors love to think about big questions. Philosophy majors receive practical preparation for careers that demand creative and critical thinking, comfort with disagreement and uncertainty, as well as strong reading, writing, listening and communication skills. Philosophy has an outstanding pre-law track for students bound for law school.
