Why study philosophy and religious studies?

Studying philosophy and religion asks you to confront life's most profound questions — such as the meaning of life, the significance of truth and what it means to live ethically. A minor in Philosophy from UND prepares you to grapple with thorny problems, think for yourself and create the career of your dreams.

The Philosophy department offers several options:

Major in Philosophy

  • Philosophy Concentration
  • Pre-Law Concentration

Minor in Philosophy

  • Philosophy Concentration

Each option features small classes and an active learning environment where your voice will be heard. Whichever track you choose, you'll learn to think for yourself, craft a compelling argument and analyze information.

Philosophy is also an excellent double major. Philosophy works with everything, teaching you how to learn, think critically and excel in any career.
