Return to Programs A-Z Return to: Programs A-Z

Department of Philosophy  College of Arts and Sciences 


Prerequisite Course (3 Hours)

Required Courses (18 Hours)

Eighteen hours of courses at the 200-level or above.

The six courses composing the minor should, to the greatest extent possible, have some common theme. For instance, it is possible for students to choose courses emphasizing the following general areas in philosophy:

  • History of Philosophy
  • Ethics, Aesthetics and Value Theory (including social and political philosophy)
  • Logic, Epistemology, and Metaphysics (including the philosophy of science)

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences, Liberal Arts division should be aware of the fact that they need to take an additional course in philosophy (other than the courses that are being used for the Philosophy minor or Philosophy 110 or 111) to satisfy the Philosophical Reasoning portion of the College’s General education Requirements. Philosophy 102 may be used for this purpose. Students who may desire to do graduate work in Philosophy are advised to take more than one course at the 500 level.

Courses must have the approval of the student’s advisor and an advisor in the Philosophy Department. The approval of the Philosophy advisor may come at any stage of the program.
