I am a Freshman Philosophy major at Cedarville. It has been my dream to come to Cedarville and study Philosophy for over 2 years. This comes along with encouragement from my Pastor, who has been very supportive of me studying it. He often says that the critical thinking skills Philosophy teaches are very beneficial to those studying theology and serving in the Church. I feel God leading me to ministry and I desire to use these skills to aid me in the interpretation of scripture and making decisions in Church leadership.
I am shocked that Cedarville would even consider removing the Philosophy program/department. This would be absolutely detrimental to our school and its reputation.
