From its inception as a founding core discipline at UCSC, the Philosophy Department has trained students and fostered research in fundamental, historical and contemporary ideas about the logic, methods, analytics and sets of perspectives that frame a philosophical view of the human world. A world now engaged in transformative questions about ethics in science, medicine, business, environmental stewardship and human rights.  

UCSC’s studies in Philosophy train today’s students to understand, present and advocate a position about topics such as euthanasia or world hunger, environmental or human rights through multiple historical, literary, and economic views that shape human ethics and social policies.  Successful Philosophy student teams from UCSC, regularly place in the top three spots among major universities, for national competition in debate-based ethics forums, and go on to careers in public policy research or law.
