In addition to the courses required by the College, PHI 1000 - Knowledge, Reality, Self, and one upper-division Philosophy elective, Philosophy majors must complete nine more courses, three in the History of Philosophy sequence, and six that define a specific Path of Study.
Philosophy majors must complete three courses in the History of Philosophy:
With the approval of the Chair of the Department, upper-division electives and Topics courses in Ancient, Medieval and Modern Philosophy offered in Philosophy and Honors may substitute for the courses offered in this sequence.
Because of the interdisciplinary nature of philosophical studies, the Department welcomes and encourages students who want to combine their philosophy major with a major in another department. In order to make this possible, philosophy double majors can (with the permission of the Chair of the Philosophy Department) count up to six cognate or related credits from the second major toward fulfilling the Philosophy Major requirements.
