The primary goal of the Philosophy Department is to enhance and improve the intellectual quality of education of every undergraduate student at the University of Akron by developing their critical thinking, reasoning, and evaluative skills.  These skills are necessary for success in every discipline and are of significant importance to each student's personal fulfillment and future success in any chosen occupation.
