What is the ultimate nature of reality? What does it take to know how the world works? How should we construct a just society? And how can we lead good lives?

Philosophy draws on and contributes to work in a variety of disciplines — linguistics, psychology, computer science, religious studies, biology, physics, and sociology — to investigate these questions. Philosophers develop practical reasoning and writing skills that lead to success in graduate school, business school, law school, medical school, and beyond.
