Many students find that their studies in their major field can be profitably supplemented by pursuing their studies in philosophy. The Philosophy minor is designed for students who desire a significant background in philosophy while majoring in a different field. Students from many disciplines pursue the Philosophy minor, including English, History, Physics, Mathematics, Management Studies, and so on. Declaring a minor in Philosophy will allow you to continue your philosophy studies throughout your degree, and you will receive a certificate in Philosophy when you graduate.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
