Undergraduate Information

Our department offers a Bachelors of Arts in Philosophy, either focusing on Philosophy or adding a concentration in Religion. To receive the BA, one must complete the requirements of the Department of Philosophy and Religion as well as the core requirements of all majors in the College of Arts & Sciences.

In addition to being a valuable major on its own, Philosophy is also an excellent option for a double major along with other disciplines at Mississippi State. Philosophy helps you to develop critical thinking, writing, reading, and discussion skills that are useful in any discipline or pursuit.
