Philosophy Minor


(15 credits)

Since the time of Socrates, the study of philosophy has cultivated the skills needed for leadership in the midst of cultural change: how to ask questions, think critically and imaginatively, and reason effectively about cultural, moral, and political values and beliefs, including those that prevail within professions. Hence, the philosophy minor is a powerful complement to any major, and signifies a capacity for leadership.

Many of the courses required for minors may also fulfill or partially fulfill a General Education category. For more information, see the General Education Requirements section. Some courses required for minors may also satisfy courses required for majors. Students pursuing a minor should notify and consult with the appropriate department chair and complete the appropriate paperwork with the Registrar’s Office so that it can be noted on the transcript.
