Philosophy (Minor)The philosophy offerings are designed to provide electives for students in any major area, but especially in the liberal arts. There are no formal prerequisites for any course.
The courses in philosophy introduce the student to some of the most enduring and challenging problems that we know and the attempts we have made to solve them. Students who take courses in philosophy enhance their ability to think critically and vigorously, analyze arguments, and express their views clearly and concisely, orally and in writing. Courses in philosophy are good preparation for students considering graduate studies, law, medicine, and work with government agencies and private corporations.
The University Studies requirement in behavioral science may be satisfied by completing Philosophy 251, and the University Studies requirement in Humanities and Fine Arts may be satisfied by completing Philosophy 231 or 331 or 332 or 360 or 362.
