The Program in Philosophical Studies is designed to provide interested students a set of opportunities:
- To encounter and explore some of the major philosophical ideas that have shaped human understanding, culture, and history.
- To develop a high level of skill in critical and constructive thinking.
An individual major, designed in consultation with the respective coordinators of the programs in individual majors and in philosophical studies, is available for students with a vocational interest in philosophical studies.
Minor in Philosophy
A minor in philosophical studies is intended to provide a useful complement to a student’s major academic, professional, or pre-professional interests. It is intended also to be helpful background for graduate study not only in various areas of philosophy but also in related areas of the humanities, such as literary criticism or intellectual history, or in other areas such as law or religion.
