The Philosophy Department receives 20th place in top 20 affordable U.S. small college programs from

Spanning topics from the ancient and medieval to the modern and contemporary, Augsburg College’s affordable undergraduate philosophy program is a great introduction to the history of Western thought. In addition to reading pivotal thinkers like Plato, Hegel, and Russell, philosophy majors at Augsburg are trained in critical thinking, speaking, and writing to learn how to communicate difficult ideas with confidence. Many students also pursue an honors thesis project, for which they receive one-on-one mentorship from experienced faculty. But Augsburg’s most unique offering is its interdisciplinary minor (sic.) in Computational Philosophy, which leverages both disciplines to investigate artificial intelligence, logic, and the philosophy of mind.
