Each student will plan an individual program with an adviser to arrive at a combination of courses that will meet the requirements for the major and be most meaningful for the student’s goals and interests. The philosophy faculty strongly recommends that the student obtain an adviser from among the faculty in the student’s area of concentration by the beginning of the junior year. The following model is suggested as a possible basic program to satisfy the above requirements:
- First year:
Core Curriculum requirements and either PHIL 101 or PHIL 120, and PHIL 300 or 301.
- Sophomore year:
Core Curriculum requirements, PHIL 215 and completion of PHIL300/301, and one non-Western elective philosophy course.
- Junior year:
Completion of Core Curriculum requirements, PHIL 430 in the spring, one of 380/381/382, and one elective course in philosophy or religious studies, and PHIL 492 in the spring
- Senior year:
PHIL 493/494 and one elective philosophy course.
