Philosophy

The study of philosophy is the study of ideas - how they are formed and how they evolve. Since you’re reading this, chances are you are something of a philosopher already. And although philosophy is often thought of as an abstract, non-“real world” exercise, philosophy is actually the foundation of thought behind law, journalism, medicine, science, theology and business.

We recognize that the study of philosophy is more than reading Plato or Kant; it is also about seeing the effects of philosophical ideas in the real world. That is why we encourage students to think about, discuss, and write about philosophy applied to life. In other words, we do philosophy at St. Andrews. Lively discussions of wide-ranging ideas predominate in the classroom. In addition to our course offerings, St. Andrews sends a team each year to compete in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Ethics Bowl and is beginning an active program in applied ethics on campus in partnership with North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities.
