First- and Second-Year Preparation

Although majors are not required to take courses in philosophy in their first 2 years, the department recommends that they do so. Prospective majors are encouraged to begin with one of the 100-level courses. These courses provide introductions to broad areas of philosophy, and students may apply one 100-level course toward the major requirements. PHIL 310, PHIL 384, and PHIL 386 are required prerequisites for upper-division work and should be taken early. Prospective majors should consult their academic advisor early to plan course work.

Graduation requirements are provided in the Academic Catalog; however, this catalog is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a contract.
