The Colorado College Philosophy Department embraces diversity in philosophical inquiry, emphasizing in its curriculum historical, contemporary, comparative, and critical approaches in an effort to make available to students the breadth and richness of philosophical thinking.

Our program of study builds on the history of philosophy, identifying within it diverse and influential perspectives on the human experience as well as ideas that challenge predominant ways of thinking. We highlight contemporary approaches to philosophy, seeking to incorporate insights from both analytic and continental schools of thought; and our rich array of courses in comparative and critical philosophy is central to the program. The Philosophy Department gives students the unusual opportunity to combine the study of Western, African, Asian, and Latin American approaches to philosophy while including in their inquiries the philosophical perspectives of marginalized or oppressed groups within the Western world.
