Majoring & Minoring

We’ve got both. For a major, you only need a minimum of 40 semester credits
(10 courses), distributed as follows:

  • 101.
  • 102 or 103.
  • Any 200-level philosophy course except 250.
  • 250.
  • Two courses from the history of philosophy sequence, 301-307.
  • Two courses from the themes in philosophy sequence, 310-315.
  • Two philosophical studies (400-level) courses.

So it’s easy to do a double major. You’ll have plenty of choices. You’ll be able to pursue your own interests. Ask the philosophy majors, and they’ll tell you — it’s wonderful!

Friedrich Nietzsche: “What I understand by ”˜philosopher’: A terrible explosive in the presence of which everything is in danger.”

For a minor, you’d take a minimum of 28 semester credits (seven courses), distributed as follows:

  • Philosophy 101.
  • Any 100-level or 200-level philosophy course except 101 and 250.
  • 250.
  • Two courses from the history of philosophy sequence, 301-307.
  • One course from the themes in philosophy sequence, 310-315.
  • One philosophical studies (400-level) course.

Again, lots of choices. Even if you’re a double major, you can do a philosophy minor too.

Hypatia of Alexandria: “Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all.”
