Social work rests on the firm belief that all people are of equal value and that every person possesses the capacity to face challenges and to grow and change.

philosophy

Philosophy majors address the fundamental questions by developing foundational cognitive skills. They learn to question the things most people take for granted and they learn how to go about pursuing the answers to those questions. The great virtue of philosophy is that it teaches not what to think, but how to think. Because of this, a philosophical education is a valuable foundation for just about any career and just about any sort of life. The Philosophy online forums gives everyone that same opportunity.
