Lovers of Wisdom
Are you considering a career in law, publishing, academia, public service, or ministry? Graduates of Taylor’s philosophy program have gone on to become leaders in all of these fields. They are attorneys, pastors, college professors, authors, editors, coaches, missionaries, and business entrepreneurs.
Taylor’s philosophy program develops skills in critical thinking, textual analysis and moral reasoning, as students explore worldviews, the history of ideas, and the foundations of human thought. The philosophy program digs deep into the core of liberal arts education, effectively preparing our students to excel in graduate school and their careers.
Philosophy means “love of wisdom”and that is what you develop at Taylor. We provide rigorous and rewarding training involving the mind and the heart. You won’t just learn in the classroom -- you will learn what it means to be a truly virtuous person by interacting in our community, attending conferences, participating in our Ethics Bowl program, and being mentored by our professors.
