5 Reasons to Study Philosophy

Thinking about studying philosophy? Here are our top five reasons to study philosophy at Auburn University.

  1. We're a small program but with the benefits of a large research university.
  2. Because of our low student-to-faculty ratio, we'll get to know you personally. You'll spend time interacting with your professors both inside and outside the classroom.
  3. We teach you the skills employers want—the ability to think, read carefully, write, problem-solve, and analyze.
  4. Our award-winning professors are internationally recognized scholars at the forefront of their fields of study. You’ll learn from some of the best professors Auburn has.
  5. We offer fun activities outside of the classroom, including discussions at local coffee shops, special lectures, movie nights, and field trips to national philosophy conferences.
