Minor in Philosophy

"The unexamined life is not worth living" -- Socrates

Writing Requirement

In accordance with Arts and Sciences policy, writing assignments in upper-level philosophy courses will involve a minimum of 3,000 words of college-standard English.

All major writing assignments will be criticized and returned for revision.
