Philosophy 101, 103, 105, 107, 108, 109, and 211 have no prerequisites. Any l00-level course is prerequisite for a 200- or 300-level course, though the instructor may grant permission to enroll on an individual basis to equivalently prepared students.
A philosophy major consists of nine courses in philosophy. No more than two 100-level courses may be counted toward the major. Students must take at least two courses chosen from Philosophy 205, 206, 207, and 208; Philosophy 211; one or more advanced 300-level courses; and Philosophy 400 Senior Seminar. Senior thesis is recommended for all majors and is a prerequisite for departmental honors. It may be taken as an individualized study in either the fall or spring term.
A philosophy minor consists of six philosophy courses in the department, no more than two of which may be 100-level courses.
