 Philosophy takes on a whole new meaning when you participate in a live, off-campus Philosophy Slam—a forum of free expression—sponsored by Jacksonville University’s Philosophy Club. A moderator promotes thought and debate as students express themselves on hot-button issues such as free speech, politics, euthanasia, sexuality, and religion. This unorthodox teaching method is extremely popular and provides a unique format for engaged learning. 

At JU, the philosophy curriculum is designed to introduce students to the full range of philosophical thinking, from ontology and metaphysics to ethics and epistemology. Rather than focus on a particular content or approach, graduates develop the habit of thinking and writing about complex philosophical issues in a critical and rigorous manner. Students enjoy close mentoring relationships with their professors, and gain a broader perspective from guest speakers and lecturers.
