Before there was the scientific method, there was philosophy. Literally the “love of wisdom,” philosophy seeks to explain the world through examination. The study of philosophy is foundational if you are dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge.

When you study philosophy at Collin, you will become acquainted with the main problems of philosophy, examining those problems from multiple perspectives, so that a greater truth can be determined. You will come away with a greater understanding of philosophical thinking and a better understanding of the people around you.
