Department of Philosophy and Religion

Faculty: Professor Geisz; Associate Professor Arvan, Chair; Visiting Assistant Professor Westmoreland; Instructional Faculty Hardy, Johnson.

The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers programs that emphasize critical thinking and logical reasoning and introduce students to a wide variety of philosophical traditions and issues. These programs can be especially helpful to students considering law school, medical school or graduate school, as well as to students looking for a strong foundation in a core liberal arts discipline that will enrich their lives and contribute to their future success in a variety of professions.

The department offers a philosophy major and a minor, and it contributes key courses to the Asian studies minor. The department also offers courses in religion.

The philosophy major at UT can be a stand-alone major, but students are encouraged to consider completing the philosophy major as part of a double major.
