The Department offers an undergraduate Major in Philosophy with a choice of four concentrations:
- Philosophy (no specific concentration)
- Ethics and Public Policy
- Philosophy and Law
- Philosophy and Science
In addition, it offers a Minor in Philosophy and a Minor in Philosophy of Law. All of the required courses place a heavy emphasis on developing students' abilities to think, read, and write critically. While some of our majors go on to become university philosophy professors, most go on to careers in such areas as law, medicine, business, government, teaching, and public service.
