Studying Philosophy at Weber State
Weber State’s philosophy major teaches curious, thoughtful students to examine their belief systems as they learn about the influential thinkers who have shaped the ways we think about values, knowledge and the nature of reality.
Weber State’s philosophy program offers both a major and a minor. Because philosophy is foundational to every other discipline, the philosophy minor pairs well with any major.
As a philosophy major, you can apply for scholarships through the Richard Richards Institute for Ethics, which promotes ethical behavior at all levels of government and business.
Beyond the Classroom
As a philosophy student, you can join Weber State’s Philosophy Club (NOUS), which meets regularly to discuss issues of philosophical importance.
You can also join Weber State’s successful ethics bowl team to debate moral issues against teams from other schools. Many philosophy majors also expand on what they learn in the classroom through Weber State’s moot court and mock trial team.
