Students who major in Philosophy must complete 10 courses:
- 1 Introductory Elective
- 1 Introduction to Logic
- 1 History of Philosophy Elective
- 1 Theoretical Philosophy Elective
- 1 Practical Philosophy Elective
- 1 Advanced Seminar
- 2 Additional Philosophy courses
- 2 Capstone Project
Only two Introductory Electives may count toward the major in Philosophy.
All students should begin with an Introductory Elective. Satisfactory completion of an Introductory Elective is a prerequisite for all of the other courses required for the major, except Logic courses. Students who are considering a Philosophy major should also take Introduction to Logic as soon as possible — preferably before the end of their second year.
No credit toward the major is awarded for courses with a grade lower than C.
Students who choose to double major in Philosophy and another discipline and who choose to complete their Capstone project in that other discipline must still complete ten Philosophy courses. Instead of the two-semester Capstone Research Project in Philosophy, student may elect any two additional Philosophy courses (other than Introductory Electives).
