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.
