Philosophy


Although there is no major in philosophy, its broad range of electives should fill the needs of the inquiring student.

Students taking courses in philosophy will find themselves confronted with some of the great questions that assail the thinking person. Insights and theories formulated by major philosophers of the Western and Eastern intellectual traditions are examined and the basic skills of philosophical thought are mastered. It is the aim of the Division of Philosophy and Religious Studies to teach each student to philosophize.

The general education requirement in philosophy may be filled by any philosophy course except Independent Study.

No student may apply more than three credits at the 1000 level toward the degree.

Minor in Philosophy


The division offers a minor in philosophy consisting of 18 credits; at least 15 credits must be beyond 1000 level. The student should plan a minor program with a member of the division. The program must meet the following requirements:

  • at least 3 credits at the 2000 level;
  • at least 3 credits at the 3000 level;
  • at least 3 credits at the 4000 level.
