Minor in Philosophy

The philosophy minor offers students an opportunity to learn about value theory, social/political philosophy, and the history of philosophy.  In general, the Minor promotes three core values of a liberal education:  critical thinking, global citizenship, and narrative imagination.  Students are exposed to theories addressing ethical and aesthetic values, research and epistemology, and systematic/discursive forms of thinking and reasoning.  The minor will enrich and broaden students’ understanding of diverse philosophical perspectives, and provides a suitable complement to majors in the social sciences and business.
