Alumni Response Series - Mohamed El-Sayed '15  

Mohamed El-Sayed pictureMohamed earned his B.S. from Seton Hall in 2015 Summa Cum Laude with majors in Biology and Philosophy and was in the Seton Hall Honors program. He is currently a chiropractic student at NY Chiropractic College and expected to graduate 2018.

Mohamed on "Why study philosophy?"

"I chose to pursue philosophy as a second major because I believed that the hard sciences by themselves offered an incomplete perspective on life. I found that simply studying human physiology without engaging in a sincere and thoughtful conversation about what it really means to be a person deeply dissatisfying. Deeper philosophical questions should not take a back seat to the increasingly relentless pursuit of one's professional aspirations and self-interests. Combining biology with philosophy also helped me to stand out during the chiropractic school application process."

The Department of Philosophy at Seton Hall provides the opportunity for examining major philosophers and areas from ancient times to the present. Students are able to learn about the field, and receive strong training in analytical and writing skills. The program's faculty conduct internationally recognized research and innovative, technologically-enhanced instruction grounded in practical experience while also exploring the frontiers of their discipline.

Mohamed is an example of what great minds can do at Seton Hall. As the University celebrates its latest milestone of an alumni network of 100,000, achievements of alumni of all walks of life will continue to be highlighted throughout the year.
