TMCC offers a number of Philosophy courses to serve the diverse needs of the community and the academic needs of students majoring in many fields.
The Philosophy curriculum includes several courses on religion, such as an introduction to the Old Testament, a study of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and an introduction to world religions (PHIL 210).
Philosophy uniquely provides several avenues for better understanding of and interacting with our world. Philosophical thinking gives us tools for pondering the big questions about the nature of reality, time, being, causation and human consciousness. It allows us to distinguish between facts supported by rigorous evidence and assumptions supported by hearsay or opinion.
Philosophy gives us techniques for comprehending the most important questions underpinning science, religion, art and the conduct of our lives. By studying philosophy, our thinking becomes more reasonable and articulate, allowing us to make more responsible career choices and to make our lives more fulfilling and meaningful.
