If you are the thoughtful, introspective type, and enjoy examining different points of view, consider majoring in Philosophy of Law. Lewis University's Philosophy of Law program will help you examine the intellectual framework underlying our society and justice system.
Philosophy courses help students develop skills in writing, persuasion and critical thinking. You will learn how to communicate ideas more effectively. You will investigate fundamental questions surrounding nature, being, reason, knowledge and faith -- the same questions that famous philosophers have wrestled with for centuries. As you encounter these issues, you will be able to formulate your own ideas through interactive dialogue with your professor and classmates.
The curriculum focuses on reading and analyzing the works of past and present philosophers, with courses such as Ancient and Medieval Philosophy, Contemporary European Philosophy, and Philosophy of God. Additionally, the department offers a large selection of elective courses, with topics including aesthetics, logic, political philosophy and more.
The Philosophy of Law degree is great preparation for students who wish to pursue graduate or professional school. While it offers an ideal academic background for graduate studies in Philosophy or Law, it's also good preparation for careers in psychology, education, social work and more.
