Philosophy Minor

Students can complete the Philosophy minor in its entirety at Kent State Stark.

The Philosophy minor helps students develop skills such as critical thinking, careful reading and analysis of texts, argumentative and analytical writing, creative problem-solving, effective communication and global literacy — all of which are vital to success in a wide range of professions.

The minor provides excellent preparation for graduate school entrance exams (such as the GRE, LSAT and GMAT) and enhances the career preparation students obtain in their major field.

Philosophy minors develop these important skills while being introduced to a fascinating discipline which considers basic, timeless questions such as

  • "What is the nature of reality?"
  • "What (if anything) can I know with certainty?"
  • "What kind of life should I live?"
