Philosophy

Educational Opportunities

Learning is enhanced at Illinois Wesleyan by the high quality of individualized instruction students receive from our faculty. Philosophy classes typically have no more than 25 students. It is our view that students should be doing philosophy, rather than merely learning what famous philosophers have said. Philosophy develops in the give and take of arguments and so requires an environment in which students and faculty can engage in discussion. Frequent papers and other writing assignments will enable students to polish their critical analysis and communication skills. The philosophy faculty is committed to working closely with students, answering their questions in and out of class.
