The subject of philosophy encompasses such fundamental issues as the scope and limits of human knowledge, the ultimate constituents of reality, the sources of value and obligation, and the nature of logic and correct reasoning.
Sacramento State offers the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in philosophy as well as a philosophy minor.

The Center for Practical and Professional Ethics
The Center for Practical and Professional Ethics takes as its overriding mission to foster and enhance the place of ethics in professional and public discourse, and to foster and support ethical practice, both in the University Community and in the broader Sacramento Region. Its mission is, therefore, educative, scholarly and practical.
We offer a variety of programming throughout the academic year, including the Ethics Symposium each fall and the Nammour Symposium in the spring. All our campus events are free and open to the public. Check the Campus Events Calendar for more information, and follow CPPE on Facebook.
