Philosophy at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi

The Island University is proud to be the only university in the A&M system outside College Station to offer both the minor (18hrs.) and the major (30hrs.) in philosophy. Boasting a long and storied tradition in Applied Ethics, the Philosophy Program has particular strengths which are rare outside much larger universities, including American Pragmatism and Eastern Philosophy.
