Philosophy Course List

The current list of philosophy classes that we offer is below. (We are in the process of developing many new classes, so this list will soon expand.)

Please note the following:

• All philosophy classes will count toward the General Education humanities distribution requirement. For this GE requirement you need to take a total of 5 courses in the humanities and as many as 3 of those can be philosophy courses.

• All philosophy classes at the 100 and 200 levels have no prerequisites and are open to all students. All of these classes can serve as good introductory philosophy classes. The 200 level classes are more focused on a specific area, theme or topic in philosophy than the 100 level classes, but they are still intended as introductory classes and any motivated student can do well in a 200-level philosophy class without any previous experience in philosophy.

• Philosophy classes at the 300 and 400 level have a prerequisite of at least one previous philosophy class or permission of the instructor. If you are interested in taking a 300 or 400 level class but have not taken a philosophy class before, please talk to the instructor for the class. Instructors can waive the prerequisite if they believe you can handle the course material.

• The University Catalogue hasn’t been updated to reflect changes we recently made in our curriculum, so if you notice differences between the list below and the Catalogue don’t be alarmed. The course names, numbers and prerequisites on this list are all up to date.
