ACC is one of the few community colleges in the nation to offer an associate’s degree in philosophy. Our Philosophy, Religion, and Humanities department is large and vigorous, serving students from Round Rock to Fredericksburg.

The department provides students with critical thinking skills that have a broad range of applications in professional, social, and personal life. Courses cover a diverse group of questions and topics, spanning from classic investigations into the nature of reality, truth, and morality, to contemporary inquiries into freedom, identity, and justice.

Our students frequently transfer regionally to Texas State, the University of Texas, St. Edward’s University, Southwestern University, as well as to many other quality institutions across the United States. They proceed to graduate programs in Philosophy and successful careers in both the public and private sector.
