    Minor in Philosophy

    A minor in philosophy consists of five philosophy courses, three of which are at or above the 3000-level.

    Opportunities for Non-Majors

    Philosophy courses are designed for all students; only five courses in the department have prerequisites. Courses at the 1000-level offer basic elements of the liberal arts on a lecture/discussion format: general philosophy, logic, and ethics. Courses at the 3000-level explore philosophical issues in various disciplines on a seminar/discussion format: in three major historical periods: ancient, modern, and contemporary philosophy; in topical courses, philosophies of religion, art, science, law, society, and politics; and in seminars in philosophy on selected themes. In each case students from various disciplines examine concepts fundamental to their particular areas of interest.

    The goals of all philosophy courses are the same: to enhance students’ ability to think critically and systematically and to introduce students to the works of important philosophers and the fundamental questions of philosophy.
