The Philosophy Department offers a minor in addition to the major. The minor enables students who are interested in studying philosophy but who choose not to be a philosophy major to receive recognition for their philosophy coursework on their transcripts. The requirements for the philosophy minor are as follows.

A total of 18 PHL credits, including:

  1. PHL 200 (renumbered 101) or PHL 210 or PHL 211 = history requirement
  2. PHL 130 or PHL 330 or PHL 432 = logic requirement
  3. At least one 400 level PHL course.
