Field Description

Philosophy involves an ongoing attempt to analyze, interpret, and rationally explain what people believe, value, and do. Philosophy courses acquaint students with the great ideas of Eastern and Western civilization and assist them in developing philosophical orientations of their own. Courses in philosophy serve both philosophy majors and those who wish to study philosophy as part of the common heritage of educated men and women.

The Major

The major requires 24 credits in philosophy, including three courses in the history of philosophy (chosen from PHI 2155, PHI 2165, PHI 2170, PHI 3000, PHI 3120, PHI 3130, PHI 3140, PHI 3145, and PHI 3150), one course in logic ( PHI 1600 or  PHI 3010), and a capstone course, chosen from among the special topics courses ( PHI 4900 and  PHI 4905), the senior seminar ( PHI 5010), or one honors course ( PHI 6001H-6003H).

A student who uses PHI 1500PHI 1600, or  PHI 1700 to satisfy the philosophy requirement of the base curriculum may not also use that course toward the 24 credits required for the major.

A student who uses  PHI 1600 toward the base curriculum has fulfilled the logic requirement of the major but must complete the 24 credits required for the major in addition to  PHI 1600.

All courses in the Department of Philosophy listed below are 3 credits except  PHI 5000-5004 and  PHI 6001H, which have variable credits.
