Philosophy

Program Type: Minor
Program Level: Undergraduate
Department: Minors

The philosophy minor provides exposure to the major fields within the discipline: metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and logic. Metaphysicians ask, “What are the basic kinds of entities comprising reality?” Epistemologists ask, “What is the nature of knowledge, and what can we justifiably be said to know?” Ethicists ask, “What is valuable, and on the basis of what standards should human conduct be evaluated?” Logicians ask, “What are the principles by which we distinguish good from bad arguments?”
