Minor in Philosophy

A minor in philosophy adds depth to any major. A political science student with a working knowledge of Locke, for example, has a greater understanding of American political thought. A theatre major studying Sartre and the existentialists can bring valuable creative input to productions. A business major studying ethics is on top of contemporary problems in economic development, investment, and social responsibility.

Students minoring in philosophy must take five courses in philosophy, including:

PHL 106 Critical Reasoning OR PHL 220 Logic
PHL 303 Ancient Philosophy
PHL 304 Modern Philosophy
Two other 300/400-level courses
