Department of Philosophy

Main Page Content

One of the most useful majors you can study, philosophy builds critical thinking skills that apply to any profession. It's also a great option for a double major.

  • Online Summer Courses

    This summer (2017), the philosophy department will offer two online courses.  Students may take Introduction to Philosophy (PHL.101) during Summer Session II (May 30 - July 1), and students may take Introduction to Ethics (PHL.102) during Summer Session III (July 5 - August 5).  Both courses will be fully online.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the philosophy department.

  • Challenging and Supportive Faculty

    "I consistently felt both challenged and supported by the department's knowledgeable and accessible faculty, which was exactly what I needed... to grow as a writer, critical thinker, and person. As a grad student going for my PhD in philosophy, I frequently find myself thinking about how grateful I am for the quality preparation I received for graduate work during my time at Brockport."

    — Mark Satta, now a PhD student at Purdue
