The Marquette Philosophy Department is a community of teachers and scholars who aim to enable students in all disciplines by developing interpretive, critical, analytical and communicative skills necessary for personal, intellectual and moral development, cultural literacy and achievement in the complexities of life in the twenty-first century. In addition to its role in the University Core of Common Studies, the department offers a major with three concentrations which students can select based on their interests and educational goals: History of Philosophy; Social, Political and Legal Philosophy; and Ethics and Values. The skills developed in the major are applicable to any subject matter, and in any human context, are sought after by employers in many fields and help to explain why philosophy majors on average score the highest overall scores on the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) and Graduate Record Exam (GRE) exams. Philosophy as an investigation of the enduring questions facing humanity -- What is the human being?, What should the human being do?, What is the relationship of the human being to the world around him/herself? and What is the relationship of the human being to the transcendent? — encourages the student to be reflective about his/her human life. Philosophy asks the student to evaluate critically the civilization in which he/she lives while emphasizing the communal nature of human existence and our need to live with others.
