General Studies (Philosophy)

Concentration Chair: Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, OP

Courses are designed to provide a broader awareness of philosophy in general through an interdisciplinary concentration core. Students must select at least one course from each of the other four concentrations following completion of their co-requisite courses and program core.

Concentration Goals

    1. To enable students to cultivate a general philosophical awareness
    2. To provide students with an understanding of their own identity as individual substances of a rational nature
    3. To enable students to understand their relationship to one another, to the world in which they live, and to God

Concentration Outcomes

  1. Students will demonstrate an awareness of the relationship between their reason and their appetites.
  2. Students will demonstrate an awareness of the relationship between themselves and God/Nature/Neighbor
