Minor - Philosophy

University Campus

Plato and Aristotle once said philosophy begins in wonder. Saint Leo calls all curious thinkers to ponder life’s big questions, arriving at practical solutions to problems facing the world today. The philosophy minor is a great supplement to studies in religion, political science, history and pre-law.
