Philosophy Minor

Students seeking to minor in philosophy must take the two philosophy courses required in the GEP: PHL 154, Moral Foundations, and one PHL course meeting the “Philosophical Anthropology” requirement.  Students then complete any four additional philosophy courses, for a total of six philosophy courses.  Please note that philosophy courses that satisfy the Faith & Reason or Ethics Intensive GEP requirements also count toward the philosophy minor. 

Prospective minors should contact Dr. Julie McDonald, Chair of the Philosophy Department:  Barbelin 261A  610-660-1378
