The MVNU Experience

As a philosophy major at MVNU, you’ll be able to design a flexible program combining philosophy with other components such as literature, history, sociology, psychology, and communication, thus adequately preparing yourself for your chosen career or for graduate studies. You’ll learn to analyze and synthesize, to think abstractly and critically, and to develop sound arguments for your beliefs.

"I get paid to read, think, and write about questions like what does it mean to be virtuous and what exactly is free will. MVNU’s philosophy program helped provide the foundations that have shaped my life and vocation ever since."
