Philosophy

Philosophy at Clovis Community College seeks to answer life's ultimate questions about knowledge, human nature, and the good life. Courses satisfy GE requirements and prepare students to transfer to humanities and social science programs at Cal States, UCs, and many Private Schools.

Philosophers study big questions about life, morality, and meaning, and they are unafraid of diverse viewpoints. Clovis Community College's full-time faculty hold PhDs in philosophy and have a passion for teaching in an engaging way. Students of philosophy learn to critically engage complex arguments on both sides of an issue, write analytically, and formulate a more coherent philosophy of life. These skills help students succeed in four-year institutions across multiple fields of study, and they prepare them for careers that require analytical thinking. We hope our students become good citizens and life-long learners.
