The LCU philosophy program leads students to think critically and creatively about the classic problems of Western philosophy within the context of a Christian worldview. Such a setting allows you to explore the relationship between philosophy and theology from “both sides.”
Many of the courses in LCU’s philosophy major are taught in a tutorial format that combines seminar-type discussion, independent reading and reflection, one-on- one consultation, and oral examinations. In this intensive format, you will learn not only about Plato and Nietzsche, but you will learn how to learn—how to read and to teach yourself new things.
In Romans, Paul urges his audience “to be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” The LCU philosophy program takes his charge seriously. Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge and critical skills, coupled with appropriate compassion, to excel in developing a Christian mind and to do so for God. A philosophy degree will help you prepare deeply and richly for a life that is successful, meaningful, and faithful.
