This pathway studies what the best minds have thought about the questions that are most important. Questions about what we know and how we know it, about what is real, true, and good, and about how to live well. To study philosophy is to enter into a dialogue about the nature of our existence, our place in the world and the universe, and what the possibilities and limits are of our ability to know these things. Primarily, philosophy is concerned with questions, the answers to which are not readily available from science, religion, or appeals to common sense. This pathway is for students planning to continue their education to earn a bachelor’s degree in philosophy or related fields.
Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. The TTPs also constitute an agreement between community colleges and four-year colleges/universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution. Note: Due to the transferability to a four-year institution, there are to be no course substitutions where a specific course is required in the TTP curriculum guide.
All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the E-Proficiency Profile (EPP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/graduation/exit-exams.
