Department of Philosophy


The Department of Philosophy at Whittier College aims to inspire and encourage worthwhile living.

Whether you join our community as a traditional major, a major in applied philosophy, or as a minor, you are welcome to discover with us how diverse approaches to philosophy each show you how to begin to ask questions, alongside the disciplined thinkers of our age, as well as those from centuries and even two millennia ago, and across continents.
