“Excellence is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice. We do not act ‘rightly’ because we are ‘excellent’, in fact we achieve ‘excellence’ by acting ‘rightly.” -Plato

A minor in philosophy complements many major degree programs. Classes in philosophy teach critical thinking, writing, close reading, oral communication, and problem-solving skills that help a student become a valuable critical thinker, intellectual, and community member.
