Minor in Philosophy

The Minor in Philosophy allows you to study ancient, medieval and western philosophers' topics, problems, and doctrines, including the pre-Socratics, Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and Aquinas. You will also get to examine selected world religions with a concentration on the origin and significant periods of these religions' conceptual, scriptural, and doctrinal development. This minor will develop your interest in the nature and identity of the religious experience. 

You may earn a Minor in Philosophy by completing fifteen (15) hours as described below. At least twelve (12) hours counted toward the minor must not duplicate hours counted toward the major.
