In the long-standing tradition of Catholic liberal arts education, the study of philosophy has always been regarded as central to the formation of the truly educated person. Committed to this tradition and its ideal of education, Rivier University includes a philosophy requirement in its general education curriculum.

Courses in the Department of Philosophy open to students the great wealth of the world’s philosophical traditions, inviting them to participate in the philosophical quest for the purpose of human life, the essence of good community, and the ultimate nature of things. In philosophy courses students explore the history of ideas, develop an understanding of ethics, values and moral choices and, engage in philosophical reflection on a wide range of issues.
