Students must take one course from a grouping of courses with a historical emphasis (PHIL 304, 307, 309, 355, 490, and 492) and will need departmental approval for application of PHIL 490 and/or 492 to this category. Students must also take PHIL 407 or 408.
Students will need to earn at least fourteen credits of electives in philosophy, eight of which must be at the 300 level or above.
There is no language requirement for the major in philosophy; however, students planning to do graduate work in philosophy should carefully consider the desirability of intensive work in one or more languages. German, French or Greek are typically most relevant to graduate work. Early consultation with a faculty advisor is recommended.
