Philosophy Department

"If you want to learn how to think as a Christian, and to learn the skill-set essential to philosophy, look no further than Tyndale."
J.P. Moreland, Ph.D.
Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University

About the Department

The Department of Philosophy at Tyndale is committed to pursuing some of life's big  questions. The faculty's training at the University of Toronto and the University of Oklahoma allows them to engage students with topics like:

       * What is truth and can it be known?
       * Do we have free will?
       * Does God exist, and if so, why is there evil?

By seeking answers to these types of questions philosophy majors will be able to  articulate and defend a coherent worldview based upon the truth of Christianity.
