In Minneapolis College's Philosophy program, you will have the opportunity to ask the “big” questions of what exists, how we know what we know, how we should act and how we should reason. Focusing on critical thinking and reasoned arguments, the program explores themes of ethics, logic, self-identity, religion, the environment and social activism from the perspectives of varied cultures, traditions and radical thought.
