Majoring in Philosophy

A student whose aim is to use a major in philosophy as a basis for a liberal education may take the minimum major requirement of 30 hours in the department. Those who wish to prepare for graduate study in philosophy or in a related discipline will normally take more than this required minimum. A program for each major will be developed through consultation with a member of the philosophy faculty acting as a major advisor. Each major must fulfill the requirements that appear in the Undergraduate Course Catalog.
