The philosophy minor consists of four courses. Together, they enable students to: develop an awareness of the breadth and depth of the field of philosophy; develop the skills used in and virtues central to, philosophical inquiry and debate, at least to a degree of excellence reasonable to expect of a non-major; and engage students as active participants in that inquiry and debate.
