Requirements for a Minor in Philosophy
The Department of Philosophy offers minors in philosophy that enable students to pursue coursework that will supplement their major field of study. Each minor consists of three required courses (PHIL 104, PHIL 111, and either PHIL 102 or PHIL 210) and three electives at the 300 level or higher.
PHIL 325. Philosophy of Law
PHIL 326. Legal Reasoning
In addition to a general philosophy minor, minors corresponding to the four major tracks (see Curriculum & Courses page) are available. Their course requirements (in addition to PHIL 104, PHIL 111, and either PHIL 102 or PHIL 210) are described below.
To declare a minor, a special form must be filled out and filed with the Records Office by the end of the student's junior year. The appropriate form is available from the student's adviser or from the Office of the Registrar.
