Work toward responsible and responsive reason

Students in the philosophy program at Trinity learn to look beyond surface ideas and actions to study what’s beneath—the deeper conceptual ideas, cultural-historical context, and religious commitments that drive people to say and do what they do.

Earning a degree in philosophy from Trinity can open the door to a range of exciting careers. In fact, the critical thinking and communication skills you develop while pursuing your philosophy degree can prepare you to work in almost any field. Some graduates choose ministry, while others go into legal careers, politics, journalism, education, public service, business, or medicine.

Located just outside Chicago, Trinity’s campus is ideally situated for philosophy students who want to take advantage of the social, cultural, and professional networking opportunities available in the greater Chicago area.
