The Philosophy and Liberal Studies Department offers students a choice of two majors: Philosophy and Liberal Studies.
The Philosophy major is designed to help students with their most important project—developing their own morally coherent identities and world views. It offers courses that take students through the beginnings of philosophy to contemporary applications of philosophy to present day problems.
The Liberal Studies major allows students to branch out over three disciplines or conceptual frameworks of the traditional liberal arts. Students then synthesize their knowledge experiences through several thematic courses offered by the department.
Besides giving all students a solid foundation in values and self-knowledge, both of these programs prepare students for graduate study in law, medicine and business. Cabrini College philosophy and liberal studies majors have gone on to successful careers in these fields as well as many others.
Most importantly, these majors prepare students for a rich and full life, one that takes pleasure in learning and never loses its sense of wonder. The department also offers courses in the Social Justice curriculum, promoting Cabrini's "education of the heart."
