A philosophy degree at UIS was invaluable for augmenting my previous technical degrees with a wider world perspective provided by more concentrated study in the Arts. UIS has great philosophy professors and a well-rounded curriculum. I enjoyed the classes and coursework int he philosophy of mind, philosophy of computing and ethics. — Blake Dournaee
