Notes:


  1. Philosophy Core Requirements: All students must take the PL 200-level core sequence which consists of PL 201  and a second 200-level philosophical perspectives course or the Honors equivalent. Honors Program students may take an upper-level philosophy seminar (PL 321  and above) after completing HN 201  or HN 202  and HN 210  or WR 100 .
  2. PL 201  is a prerequisite for all other philosophy courses. Two PL 200-level courses are required for all 300- and 400-level courses.
  3. Ethics Core Requirements: Each student must take one course in ethics. This course may be elected from those offered by the Philosophy Department (PL 300-319) or from the courses in Christian ethics offered by the Theology Department (TH 300-319).
  4. Major Requirements: In addition to PL 201 , one other PL 200-level offering, and 10 PL 300- or 400-level courses must be taken. One course may be the ethics core requirement, provided it is chosen from PL 300-319.
  5. PL 202-250 may be taken as free electives. They do not count toward a philosophy major or minor.
  6. Students must complete the diversity core requirement through a designated diversity core, major, or elective course (see Diversity Core Requirement  under Curriculum and Policies).
