The mission of the Philosophy Department at Richland College is to provide students and teachers alike interactive and cooperative learning environments in which they may examine ideas related to their cultural, philosophical, and religious heritages. The Department further strives to develop skills in analysis and evaluation of arguments and the ability to write and to speak clearly about philosophic and religious issues which pertain to values, knowledge, reality, human nature, and God. The Department aims at translating these skills into considered action in the lives of those involved and into reasoned interactions with the greater global community.
