Philosophy provides the critical thinking, logical reasoning, and innovative problem-solving skills necessary to be competitive in law, business, academia, tech, arts, and government. It also explores what it is to live a meaningful life outside a career.
A major in Philosophy requires a minimum of 33 hours (11 courses) of philosophy.
At least 6 hours (2 courses) must be at the 4000-level.
At least an additional 18 hours (6 courses) must be at or above the 3000-level.
The remaining 9 hours (3 courses) may be at any level.
The department recommends that students begin with a 1000-level Intro course or a FYS followed by one or two other courses at the 1000 or 2000-level but it is not required that a student follow this recommendation.
Only those courses in which a grad of C or better has been earned may count toward the 33-hour requirement.
