Information for Prospective Students
The Philosophy Department welcomes majors, minors, double majors and self-designed majors, and is experienced in helping students integrate Philosophy with work in other disciplines.
The department fosters an active student-faculty intellectual community. We hold monthly "philosophy coffees" where students and faculty discuss topics of philosophical interest to the students informally. The department sponsors a colloquium series of nationally and internationally known philosophers who interact with students and faculty. The department also supports the entire student-run undergraduate philosophy journal Episteme.
A Major in Philosophy requires ten courses. A minor in Philosophy requires five courses in the department.
