Philosophy (Minor)

​The minor program is designed to complement the majors of other departments. It is designed also for those who, while not wishing to specialize in philosophy, nonetheless seek to pursue enduring questions, appraise contemporary values, and critically discuss topics of general human concern. (If you wish to use this program as an academic minor, check with your Department for permission and with the Department of Philosophy for sample programs.)
