Program Overview

A minor in philosophy is a great complement to any major. Some majors that form a particularly natural fit with a philosophy minor are legal studies, political science and criminal justice. However, students in any major will benefit from the training in critical thinking and value analysis that the philosophy minor provides.

We offer a B.A. degree program in Philosophy both online and on ground. A B.A. in Philosophy is valuable for many positions in business, government, and education. Philosophy is also an excellent pre-law degree. Many Philosophy students continue their education to pursue Master’s degrees and Ph.D.s at other accredited institutions.


We offer a 100% online B.A. program in Philosophy. You can complete the entire degree — including all program and University requirements — without setting foot on campus. Classes are designed with working students in mind, and you can work on your own schedule.

We are a pioneer in online Philosophy education. In 2004, we started the first fully online Philosophy degree program in the United States. We remain one of the best places to go for an online Philosophy degree, and we are a recognized leader in the field.

On Campus

The Philosophy major is also open to on campus students. We regularly offer several philosophy courses on ground, including PHI 101, Introduction to Philosophy; PHI 242, Ethics, Love and the Goals of Life; and PHI 252, Science Fiction and Philosophy. On ground Philosophy majors combine on ground and online courses to fulfill their degree requirements.

Minor in Philosophy

We also offer an undergraduate minor in Philosophy, which can be taken either online or on campus. A Philosophy minor is a great way to supplement a major and impress prospective employers.
