The major consists of 10 courses. We emphasize the development of precise analytical skills and help students become familiar with philosophical problems both historical and contemporary.
The minor consists of six courses, only four in addition to the two philosophy courses required of every SJU student. The minor allows students to pursue an interest in or talent for philosophy without committing to the major. Philosophy minors play an equal role in the activities, events, and opportunities enjoyed by majors in the department.
