Introduction

Welcome to the University of Tampa Library's guide to Philosophy and Ethics. The purpose of this guide is to help you successfully locate high-quality information for your research project in Philosophy and Ethics.

You might find Introduction to Library Research useful if you've never worked on a research project at the university level.

If you need help getting started, finding information, or have a question about resources, get in touch with the Philosophy librarian, asulavik@ut.edu

Undergraduate Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy and Religion, which is a part of the College of Arts and Letters, offers undergraduates the opportunity to major or minor in Philosophy. Courses in these disciplines develop and hone skills in critical thinking and logic, while giving students a solid background in both the history of philosophy and contemporary philosophical debates, and thus introduce them to a variety of issues in ethical theory and applied ethics.

If you are new to philosophy and wish to get your feet wet in it, both as a subject of inquiry and as an academic discipline, go to:
