Philosophy, B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

Regardless of their concentration, students complete five core courses. These courses serve two purposes: to provide a foundation in practical philosophy; and to provide students with a capstone research seminar at the end of their course of study. In addition to these five core courses, students select four additional courses from within their concentration. Two of these concentration courses are electives, which enable students to adapt their learning to their specific interests
