  • Philosophy courses offered at HCC include Ethics, History of Philosophy, Introduction to Non-Western Philosophy and Logic. In addition, students of philosophy meet informally twice a month to discuss broad global topics in a philosophical context

    • Government/Social Service
    • Healthcare/Medicine
    • Journalism
    • Law
    • Teaching/Consulting
    • Theology/Ministry

    If you plan to complete the first two years of study at Heartland and then continue your studies as a philosophy major at a four-year institution in Illinois, the Associate in Arts (AA) transfer preparation program is the path for you.
