Minors in Philosophy

Adding a philosophy minor to your VCU studies is a great way to boost your skill set — specifically to think critically and clearly express ideas — as well as your career options.

The Department of Philosophy offers two minors for students who are pursuing a bachelor's degree in another subject at VCU. (Links go to VCU Bulletin.)
