Philosophy and Religious Studies
The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies is proud to serve the mission of Saint Xavier University, offering classes directly related to the core values of our institution and its students. Coursework and faculty research in both programs advocate critical thinking, thoughtful engagement with historical and current questions about the common good, practical skills in writing, reading, and information literacy, as well as dedication to the spirit of life-long learning.
Graduates of the department have gone on to pursue work in a variety of fields, including:
- Teaching, entering M.A. and PhD. programs in philosophy, religious studies and related disciplines
