CBU's philosophy program challenges students to think deeply about their faith so that they can know what they believe and why they believe it. They’ll learn to recognize, analyze and engage the central issues of human existence through the context of history. During the course of study, students cover such topics as ethics, metaphysics, comparative religions and logic. They will also study apologetics which enables them to “make a defense to anyone who asks you for the reason for the hope that is in you” as instructed in 1 Peter 3:15.
