The Philosophy and Religion Department
The Philosophy and Religion Department at UNCW was founded in 1963 when the future University of North Carolina at Wilmington was still Wilmington College. From a beginning of three faculty members, it has grown to include twelve full-time faculty and to offer over sixty undergraduate courses. As a joint department that brings together two disciplines -- philosophy and religious studies -- we encourage interdisciplinary and creative approaches to teaching and research. The PAR Department seeks to foster philosophy and the study of religions and to encourage a critical appreciation of the deepest issues of human experience of the past and present, in our own culture and globally. It plays a vital role in the University’s effort to stimulate intellectual curiosity, imagination, rational thinking, and thoughtful expression in its students and in the community.
