Philosophy

Challenge conventional wisdom, develop your reasoning and critical thinking skills, and engage in spirited debate. The study of philosophy engages your most fundamental beliefs and values, enriching your educational, professional, and overall life experience.

SPSCC offers courses in introductory philosophy, ethics, logic, Asian philosophy, philosophy of religion, philosophy of science and technology, and more. Whether you’re taking a single course for enrichment or pursuing a passion, philosophy helps you understand more about who you really are – and how you can create a meaningful and productive life in our ever-changing world.
