The Minor in Philosophy

The minor program in philosophy provides a basic introduction to some central figures and themes both in the history of philosophy and in contemporary topics. The minor requires six courses:

1.  Either two courses from the history of philosophy sequence and one course from field A or field B, or one course from the history of philosophy sequence and one course from each of fields A and B
2.  Three additional courses in philosophy.

No courses in the minor can be double counted with the student's major(s) or with other minors; nor can they be counted toward general education requirements.  All courses must be taken for quality grades.

Students who elect the minor program should meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies before the end of Spring Quarter of their third year to declare their intention to complete the program. The approval of the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the minor should be submitted to the student's College adviser, on a form obtained from the College adviser, no later than the end of the student's third year.

More information about the minor in philosophy is available in the College Catalog.
