College of Arts and Sciences

The major requires a senior oral examination (0 credits). A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course of the major. (A grade of C- will not satisfy the requirement.)

Professional Track

The Philosophy Department also offers a professional track in the major which provides more rigorous preparation for graduate school or for a professional career. This track requires a minimum of 27 upper-division hours in philosophy, for a total of 33 philosophy hours. The lower-division philosophy prerequisite is PL 1100 . Required courses include PL 2500  or PL 2600 ; PL 3200  or PL 3770  or approved equivalent; PL 3100 ; at least two courses in the history of philosophy (from PL 3400 , PL 3410 , PL 3420 , PL 3430 , PL 3440 , or PL 3450 ); one course on a major philosopher; and one additional course on a philosophical topic. The three remaining philosophy courses will be selected by the student and major advisor, to concentrate on a particular area. In addition, the student must complete the required 12 semester hours of related upper-division courses, or fulfill the requirements for a minor field. Two courses each in history and a foreign language are required.
