The Philosophy Department plays a vital role in the College community. A diverse and distinguished Faculty teach a wide range of Courses, providing a solid foundation in both Eastern and Western Philosophy. We offer a strong Baccalaureate Major and a flexible Liberal Arts Minor. The major combines well with other fields to form a powerful Dual Major. It is a particularly good choice for those who may be contemplating Law School.

The Philosophy program is a high caliber, high energy one which is nonetheless small enough to offer a lot of one-on-one attention. We sponsor an energetic Philosophy Club, host an Undergraduate Philosophy Conference that attracts students from institutions throughout North America, publish a scholarly series titled Oneonta Philosophy Studies, and conduct a distinctive Service-Learning Program in India.
