Philosophy Core

office of international programs

By introducing students to the great philosophical questions, philosophy core classes ask students to seek an integrated vision of our humanity, spirituality, and the natural world. Philosophy core classes examine questions fundamental to personal dignity and social responsibility, especially key moral and political problems.

Studying abroad can be an especially enriching environment for learning philosophy. Philosophy is a global practice, and many of the best scholars teach at universities on other continents. Philosophy courses abroad enrich and enhance the liberal arts experience that Boston College seeks for its students.
