The goal of the Philosophy Department at AACC is to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and issues of Philosophy. Our aim is to teach students to read critically, think logically, and reason effectively. Students will be instructed in skills for argumentation and analytical problem solving. They will also learn to express ideas clearly and develop a capacity for creative thought.
A core knowledge of Philosophy can help to prepare students for careers in law, religious vocations, international relations, environmental sciences, and other fields that require a broad understanding of divergent worldviews and the cultures with which they interact.
