Major & Minor in Philosophy

No new majors are being accepted into this program. However, the minor is still being offered.
Current students should talk with their advisor if they have questions regarding this program.

The requirements for the Philosophy major and minor enable students to pursue a wide range of philosophical topics and become familiar with the diverse historical influences regarding their treatment. With the constant emphasis on developing students' critical thinking skills, however, the curriculum provides ongoing opportunities for students to decide for themselves what they think about any topic studied, and on what grounds. As a result, a Philosophy major or minor is appropriate training for any career or profession that requires critical thinking and communication skills, independent thinking, and an open-minded yet discriminating approach to both individualized and group problem-solving.
