A word about your studies in philosophy & theology

During your studies, you will be pushed to spot unfounded assumptions and build more logical arguments. This is the art of critical thinking. In order to build better arguments, it is important to think outside the box. Philosophy teaches you to open new possibilities, to make connections across a variety of perspectives. Additionally, theology will shed light onto the overall vision of the Christian tradition, biblically, historically, and intellectually, which fosters an understansing into the various doctrines and beliefs of Christianity. Our students go on to work in a variety of different fields, such as education, law, politics, and buisness.
