The Philosophy major provides a solid foundation in the history of philosophy as well as an in-depth study of specific subject areas, including logic, ethics, aesthetics, epistemology, and metaphysics. A Philosophy major is ideal for students wanting to continue their schooling beyond an undergraduate degree. Available courses include:

In addition to a general Philosophy major, the Philosophy Department offers a Pre-Law track. Though not a major, this track provides students planning on pursuing a law degree with the opportunity to select core courses that best prepare them for law school. Philosophy is also offered as a minor for students wishing to enhance another academic major.

Baylor offers a number of study abroad programs, one in particular that is ideal for Religion, Philosophy and Great Texts majors.
