Minor in Philosophy

Although fewer courses are required for the minor than for the philosophy degree, our philosophy minor asks fundamental philosophical questions concerning the nature of knowledge, reality and values. We also cover the historical development of major philosophical issues such as the nature of knowledge, reality, religion and morals. We'll also take an in-depth look at these issues, utilizing recent work in conceptual and methodological analysis.

The coursework emphasizes an interactive approach to learning and also teaches you excellent analytical problem-solving abilities and communication skills.
