More Information


Welcome to the Philosophy Department of St. John's University. Here, you will find our objectives, programs, course list, and information about our faculty. The members of the Department feel that the study of Philosophy is central to a strong liberal arts and sciences education and often find it disturbing that the subject is relegated to a minor and an insignificant role in the programs of many universities. If you're interested in a strong liberal arts and sciences education with Philosophy as a key ingredient, consider coming to St. John's. We assure an exciting intellectual experience.

The Department offers programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree and five different Minors.
