Philosophy & Religion
Butler offers an undergraduate degree in Philosophy that acquaints students with the distinctive nature of philosophical inquiry and introduces them to some of the main figures and fields of western philosophy.
Through studying philosophical problems, students will strengthen their ability to think logically, critically, and ethically; and learn how to accurately express complex new notions about our minds, morals, methodology, and more in both speech and writing.
Butler’s undergraduate degree in Religion helps students better understand not only their own religion, agnosticism, or atheism, but also other world religions and cultures through the use of diverse methodological approaches and tools, including those from linguistics, literature, history, archaeology, anthropology, psychology, and sociology.
Our program supplements our rich departmental curriculum with the broad tradition of a liberal arts education to ensure that students graduate with a more profound picture of the world and their place in it.
