When you learn a fact, you know one thing. When you learn to reason, you can think for a lifetime. You’ll learn skills in critical thinking, logical reasoning, persuasion, and ethics that will prove valuable in whatever career you choose. Use reason to thrive.

Philosophy Online Degree
Online learning is ideal for self-motivated people who are comfortable with current technology and can express themselves well in writing. Distance learners must also be able to manage their time effectively.
In 2021, our program was selected twice as one of the best online programs in Philosophy: https://www.bestvalueschools.org/online-philosophy-degree/ and https://www.bestcolleges.com/features/top-online-philosophy-programs/
Statistical studies show that Philosophy majors outscore almost all others on the verbal and quantitative sections of the LSAT, GMAT, GRE and similar standardized tests.
UNCG’s Pre-Law Concentration in Philosophy is a program especially designed to meet the needs of pre-law students.
