The Minor Program in Philosophy

Graduating StudentsDeepen your understanding of your major field of studies!

The aim of the Minor Program in Philosophy is to provide non-majors an opportunity to deepen their appreciation and understanding of their chosen fields by pursuing complementary philosophical studies beyond the University Core Course requirement [PHIL 160, 220, 320-330]. Students are invited to select courses from a broad range of offerings, including majors courses in the History Sequence and a large number of rotating electives, which connect with issues and concerns raised in their own major fields. The Minor Program Advisor is available to discuss course options and to assist you in selecting appropriate courses.


Six courses in Philosophy, four of which must be upper-division courses.

Required Core Courses in Philosophy [PHIL 160, 220, 320, 330] may be counted towards the Minor.

Minors must maintain an average GPA of C [2.0] in their Philosophy courses.

Minor Program Advisor: Dr. Erin Stackle, Suite 3600, University Hall.
