A philosophy and religion minor complements any degree offered at Truman. You enhance your critical-thinking skills, conduct collaborative research with faculty, extend your learning beyond the classroom, and meet like-minded peers at conferences both on and off campus.
Explore the Nature of Reality
Have you ever asked yourself:
If questions like these keep you up late at night, then a minor in Philosophy and Religion may be your ticket to intellectual nirvana. Learn to write persuasively about these topics and more, speak and listen in ways that promote understanding, and read productively while balancing openness and critical reflection.
Imagine the impact you can make by conducting research in philosophy and religion studies and submitting a paper to a conference of your peers, such as Truman’s Undergraduate Philosophy and Religion Conference held on campus each year. You can also enrich your educational experience at Truman through study abroad and internship opportunities.
Preparing for Lives That Matter
To understand any human cultural system—whether political, social, scientific, economic, or psychological—we need to learn to recognize and analyze the philosophical and religious beliefs and assumptions grounding that system. And we prepare you to excel in the skills of critical and integrative thinking, communication, and creativity that employers and graduate schools are seeking.
