Philosophy Major


Majoring in philosophy is your opportunity to join a community devoted to exploring questions of enduring significance: from human nature and our knowledge of God to the meaning of life and lifelong formation in virtue. “Why?” is our favorite question. Learn to approach conversations and engage culture with boldness, charity, careful discernment, and curiosity.

Philosophy is the lived pursuit of wisdom in everyday life—from your spiritual vocation to your profession to your personal relationships. By majoring in philosophy at Calvin, you will cultivate foundational academic skills that give you a distinctive edge in career preparation, all in the larger context of a flourishing human life.
 
The philosophy department welcomes “undecideds,” doubters, and explorers to join us in the quest for wisdom. Our program is intentionally flexible for double majors and offers a way to deepen any field of study.
