Philosophy Program
Mission Statement

The mission of the Philosophy program within the Department of Languages, Philosophy, and Communication Studies at Utah State University is to provide a high-quality education leading to an understanding of the major areas of inquiry represented within the discipline itself. The Philosophy program seeks to enable students to better understand critical issues in philosophy, with special emphasis on ethics, history of philosophy, metaphysics, theory of knowledge, and logic. Training in philosophy involves learning to reason and write with clarity and precision.
