Philosophy

Philosophy at Lycoming is an introduction to the questions that have been asked in the philosophical tradition for 2400 years. The Philosophy Department teaches courses in ancient, Medieval, modern and contemporary philosophy.

In addition, philosophy at Lycoming is a vantage point from which to think about questions that often occur to thoughtful students as they pursue majors other than philosophy. The department offers courses directly relevant to students majoring in accounting, archaeology, biology, business, criminal justice, education, international relations, mathematics, physics, political science, psychology and religion.

The philosophy curriculum is flexible and, therefore, students at Lycoming can combine a major or minor in philosophy with a major in just about any other subject. Students who pursue philosophy as a minor or as a second major will deepen their liberal arts education while at the same time preparing themselves for a career.
