Program Description Philosophy is the study of the most general principles that guide human thought and behavior. Its focus is not on teaching one what to think, but rather how to think. As such, it hones one’s abilities to analyze, question orthodoxies, and express ideas clearly. Our department offers an undergraduate major and minor in Philosophy and a minor in Ethics. We contribute to two interdisciplinary majors, Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) and Cognitive Science.
Admission Requirements Admission to Major is granted by the department.
Minimum University admission requirements are:
  • a minimum of 32 earned semester credit hours
  • a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 (C)
