Minor in Philosophy


A minor in philosophy requires 15 credits in philosophy, including at least 3 credits at the 4000-level and a further 3 credits at the 3000-level or 4000-level.

The remaining credits may be earned in any philosophy courses, except for PHIL 4998 and PHIL 4999.

Of the 15 credits required, 9 must be taken in MU course work.

A grade of C- or above in each minor course is required.

Students considering a minor might want to consult the requirements for the philosophy major before selecting their courses, so as to leave open the option of upgrading to a major at some later date.

Prospective philosophy minors must get the permission of their academic unit.
