Philosophy explores broad questions, ideas
Philosophy deepens your understanding of yourself, the world around you, and the relationship between the two. The Philosophy Program at Austin Community College helps students organize and analyze ideas, assess and compare claims, read and listen with discernment, and articulate what they think and why. Students choosing philosophy as a major typically follow the pathway through Austin Community College’s Philosophy Program, then transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year institution.
Philosophy provides a solid foundation for a career in business, teaching, writing, or public service. It’s also excellent preparation for law school and other professional programs.
