  • Welcome

    Philosophy is thinking in slow motion. It breaks down, describes and assesses moves we ordinarily make at great speed. --John Campbell, University of Berkeley

    Philosophy, though unable to tell us with certainty what is the true answer to the doubts it raises...removes the somewhat arrogant dogmatism of those who have never traveled into the region of liberating doubt, and...keeps alive our sense of wonder by showing familiar things in an unfamiliar aspect. Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)

    Philosophy has been called “the ultimate transferable work skill” because it teaches how to think critically, reason effectively, communicate clearly, solve problems intelligently, and construct thoughtful well-grounded beliefs. These core thinking and language abilities will enhance success in every area of life. The Philosophy Major at LaGuardia offers a curriculum that provides students with an invaluable foundation for every career. And by majoring in Philosophy, you are communicating to 4-year colleges that you are a serious thinker committed to fulfilling ambitious aspirations.
