The Philosophy Department at California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH), invites highly qualified, motivated, and well-organized, applicants for a pool of part-time teaching appointments.

Philosophy Department

Our mission is to prepare majors and minors who are well-grounded in the history of Western thought and who are able to think for themselves both critically and analytically.  The department offers a B.A. degree in philosophy.  We believe that the study of philosophy is an integral part of a liberal arts education.

Furthermore, we recognize the importance of cultural diversity and, through our course offerings and other instructionally related activities, address multicultural concerns.  In addition to our commitment to the majors and minors in the program, we also take seriously our contributions to general education in the form of the critical thinking course which satisfies the critical reasoning basic skills requirement as well as the two introductions to philosophy that fulfill general education requirements in the Humanities.

Our department offers a B.A. degree in Philosophy. Students can choose a religious studies option or a philosophy option in the major. The department has a diverse faculty and offers the full range of courses necessary for the major or the minor over a four year span. Many of our students take philosophy as a second major based on their passionate interest in the subject matter. Our department offers a balanced array of upper division courses in the history of philosophy, including courses in phenomenology, hermeneutics and applied ethics, among others.

We prepare majors and minors who are well-grounded in the history of Western thought and who are able to think for themselves both critically and analytically. We believe that the study of philosophy is an integral part of a liberal arts education. Furthermore, we recognize the importance of cultural diversity and, through our course offerings and other instructionally related activities, address multicultural concerns.
