Minors in Philosophy

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Section IX: Programs of Study

Students may declare an optional minor in Philosophy (the Standard concentration) or a minor in the Philosophy, Politics, Society (PPS) concentration. In either case a minor in Philosophy is comprised of 12 credits at the 200-level or above, including no fewer than 3 credits at the 300-level. Exceptions: PHILO 17000   may count toward the minor at the 200-level and PHILO 20400   shall not count. PHILO 20400 is excluded from counting toward the minor, because it is an, albeit advanced, introductory course. A student must pass a minor in philosophy with a minimum GPA of 3.00.

When constructing a philosophy minor in either the standard or the PPS concentration, a student should always consult with a philosophy department advisor beforehand.

A third minor, Political Theory, is offered jointly between the Philosophy and Political Science departments. This minor consists of 15 credits. All three minors are described below:
