Minors in Philosophy


A minor in philosophy is a great way to supplement your plan of study. The study of philosophy produces critical thinkers, readers, and writers. Consider adding a minor in philosophy to develop your ability to understand conceptually complex issues, analyze issues critically, interpret and synthesize diverse theories, and express yourself well. If you are interested in delving deeper into the study of philosophy, you may instead want to consider a major in philosophy.

Philosophy Minor

18 hours in Philosophy required.

Required Courses:

  • PHI 112 or PHI 210
  • PHI 254
  • PHI 255
  • At least 9 additional hours in Philosophy.

Not more than two 100-level courses may count toward the minor.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors allow students to synthesize information from two or more academic disciplines into one plan of study. The Department of Philosophy works in conjunction with several other departments to provide students with a number of opportunities to broaden their educational experiences.
