  • Philosophy (Minor)

  • Overview

    The Philosophy minor is offered through Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.

    Students are introduced to philosophical traditions, approaches, questions, and ways of thinking. Learn more about the Philosophy program.

    Curriculum

    The minor in Philosophy requires completion of the following five courses:

    • LPHI 2010 Philosophy 1: Ancient
    • LPHI 2020 Philosophy 2: Modern
    • 3 additional philosophy courses. Of these, all must be 3000 level or higher. Only one can be a cross-listed course or another course taken outside the concentration; this course must be approved by the chair.

    Total credits: 20

    Students must receive a grade of C or better in all courses to fulfill the minor. See the university course catalog for spring 2021 Philosophy courses that fulfill these requirements.
