Program Notes

Enrolling students need to develop strong critical thinking skills, an ability to read philosophical texts carefully, and effective communication skills.

Helpful Hints

Students are strongly recommended to consult with an advisor with transfer institutions when choosing electives in this program. Some of the electives are not offered every semester, so plan carefully with the guidance of your advisor. Before taking higher level (i.e. PHI2xx) courses, it is recommended to take and pass the Introduction to Philosophy course (PHI101).
