Students in a recent PHIL 210, with no apologies to Raphael.
A major in philosophy requires nine philosophy courses, one course in each of three (3) of these four areas: (a) History of Philosophy, (b) Metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, (c) Philosophy of Science and Logic, and (d) Value Theory. No more than three (3) of the nine may be courses numbered 199 and below. The specific courses that fall in to these different areas are listed below. Please note that courses with a ‘9’ as the middle digit (for example, 390) count as electives, but not toward one of the area requirements below. While first-year seminars may be used in the major core, they are numbered below 100, and their second digits do not correspond to the four distribution areas below.
History of philosophy:
All courses with a ‘1’ or a ‘2’ as the middle digit; for example 110, 210, 220.
Metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language:
All courses with a ‘3’ or ‘4’ as the middle digit; for example, 134, 230, 340.
Logic and philosophy of science:
All courses with a ‘5’ as the middle digit; for example, 150, 355.
All courses with a ‘6’, ‘7’ or ‘8’ as the middle digit; for example, 160, 275, 380.
