You can help bridge this gap by providing:

Before coming to Bethel I was already driven to pursue certain ultimate questions about human existence. For instance, questions about the meaning of life, the nature of the human person, the nature and objectivity of ethics, the existence of God, the problem of evil and suffering, and so on. When I came to Bethel as a philosophy major I felt like I had found a home. I found a supportive and caring community of people, among both fellow students and the faculty, with whom I could engage in shared philosophical enquiry into questions that are of great significance for human life.David McPherson, Ph.D. '05

The philosophy department at Bethel exposed me not only to challenging intellectual ideas, but also to new ways of thinking and learning. The experience helped to prepare me for the rigorous academic requirements of both law school and legal practice.Eva Rodelius '10

I think some of what I found most meaningful and helpful about being a philosophy major was the ability to think through large scale issues and problems, but also the ability to delve deeply into the details to get a deeper understanding of the issues. The ability to look at things from so many perspectives has been great in a career that requires me to consider so many different stakeholders.Brianna Menning '06
