Philosophy at NMU

Philosophy courses are designed to make students aware of major philosophical questions, the alternative answers proposed by philosophers and the ways answers are achieved, and to assist students in developing a view of life. In addition, philosophy courses help students achieve the goals common to all liberal arts studies.

The department offers course work leading to baccalaureate degrees in philosophy and minor programs in philosophy, applied ethics and religious studies.
