The Minor Program

The minor in philosophy not only emphasizes the acquisition of methodological skills used in many separate academic disciplines but also emphasizes inquiry into, and reflection upon, the knowledge and value-structures inherent in intellectual problems and texts.  Students in the minor program will (1) learn to investigate critically the major areas of philosophy including logic, value theory, and theories of knowledge and reality and (2) learn to apply their reasoning abilities in critical reading, thinking, and writing.

Students minoring in philosophy should (1) acquire the methods necessary to read, think critically and write about subjects in the sciences and humanities, (2) understand and be able to employ ethical concepts and theories of moral philosophy, and (3) be conversant with the major problems and historical development of philosophical inquiry.

A minor in philosophy consists of 18 semester hours taken in philosophy.
