Philosophy

You're a thinker. The kind of person who takes the time to learn how to think, not what to think.

You have a lot of questions and you are a seeker of meaning. The world needs your critical thinking skills, and it all starts right here at Harford.

At Harford Community College, we offer a philosophy degree that can prepare you for transfer to a four-year institution to complete your bachelor's degree. You can hone your critical thinking skills and prepare for a career in various fields like teaching, law, business, finance, and religion.
