Philosophy grapples with fundamental questions about the nature of reality, what it means to be human, and how one should act. At Mt. San Jacinto college we offer survey courses that span the history of philosophy and more specialized classes that focus on core areas of philosophy like logic and ethics. The study of philosophy teaches careful reading and writing skills, critical thinking, and sound reasoning. Further, philosophy explores the sources of value and meaning while providing vital skills for those interested in law, education, medicine, and more.
