The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies offers a major in Liberal Studies with/without a minor; and minors in Liberal Studies, Philosophy, Philosophy Education Emphasis, and World Religions. The program descriptions are listed below.

LIBERAL STUDIES MAJOR

The Liberal Studies major is designed for students who want a broad liberal arts background and the flexibility to tailor their studies to their own needs, interests and career goals. The major encompasses study of a wide range of disciplines, including the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences, which enable students to develop breadth of vision, a capacity for critical thinking, and a fundamental understanding of human nature, society and values. The major also fosters development of skills and abilities employers consider most important, such as problem solving, analytical thinking, interpersonal relations and communications skills, among others. Applied minors such as those in business, Public Relations, and Legal Studies complement this major especially well.

The Liberal Studies major is particularly appropriate for non-traditional, returning and transfer students who wish to complete a degree. Every effort is made to include applicable transfer courses within the major whether they have UW-W equivalents or not, and courses scheduled to accommodate working adults.

PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is a basic field of inquiry that is neither part of nor reducible to any other discipline. Philosophers explore ideas, questions, issues, and problems that arise from the entire spectrum of human experiences. Philosophy courses deal with fundamental issues concerning the nature of morality and the good life, methods of correct reasoning, the nature of knowledge and reality, aesthetics, and the foundations needed for a good society. In addition to courses dealing explicitly with those issues, courses are also offered that survey the history of western philosophy in light of these issues.

As a discipline central to a liberal arts education, philosophy seeks to develop students’ skills and knowledge, preparing them for life as a whole. Hence it fosters critical, analytical, and creative thinking skills that are relevant to any subject matter. The philosophy minor complements any major field of study that demands higher order thinking skills and the ability to understand and assess complex and competing points of view.
