Minor in Philosophy

Individually Designed Philosophy Minor

As a minor, Philosophy has much to offer in helping individuals of various backgrounds better understand the fundamental assumptions of their disciplines. For that reason, the minor in philosophy will be individually designed to meet special career needs and personal interests.

Selection of courses will be accomplished through discussions with and approval of the department advisor. Students must expect careful planning in any program approved. For further explanation and suggestions, consult the department advisor.
