The department offers a minor in Philosophy for all students, which requires 18 credit hours of work.

The objectives of the Philosophy minor are as follows:

  • to develop the skill to examine critically the philosophical problems which are basic and perennial for any serious-minded and reflective person;
  • to begin to develop a personal philosophy or system of beliefs concerning those issues;
  • to provide a background in the history of western thought; and
  • to analyze problems and theories in other fields in both the humanities and sciences.
