All human beings are engaged in a search for meaning and values to give order to their lives. That’s why at Clarke, we feel the study of philosophy is an essential part of a liberal arts education. Clarke’s philosophy program also advances the Catholic tradition of the university through study of Christian concepts of God, ethics and metaphysics.
Philosophy is a much-sought after major at Clarke. Currently, there are 27 students majoring in philosophy at Clarke – a large number for a small school – nationally and internationally.
