30 PHIL credits minimum; 45 PHIL credits maximum.
Two of the following:
One of the following:
Courses with multicultural content include PHIL 204 World Religions, PHIL 208 Introduction to Jewish Philosophy, PHIL 210 Women and Religion, PHIL 216 Introduction to Feminist Theory, PHIL 307 Black Thought and Philosophy, PHIL 309 Indian Religion and Philosophy, PHIL 310 Chinese Religion and Philosophy, PHIL 327 Race, Gender, Science, PHIL335 Buddhist Philosophy, and PHIL 337 Daoist Thought
*Note that PHIL 305 can be used to satisfy either the requirement in Epistemology or the requirement in Metaphysics, but not both. A student who takes PHIL 305 must take at least one additional course from one of those two categories.
After required courses are completed, sufficient elective credits must be taken to meet the minimum credit requirement for the degree.

A minor in philosophy requires a minimum of 15 credits, consisting of PHIL 105 or 205; PHIL 301 or 303; an additional 300-level PHIL course; and two PHIL electives.
You must have a grade of C- or better in all courses that you use to satisfy the requirements of the major or minor. A grade of C- or better is also required for English 110, your second writing course, and the CAS breadth requirements. Grades below C- may be used as free electives, and to meet the math and foreign languages requirements for the degree.
To graduate, you must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, as well as a cumulative major GPA of 2.0 in classes that count toward your major.
There is a limit of 45 hours on the number of credits in philosophy that can be counted toward the total 124 hours needed to graduate. Any philosophy courses cross-listed in other departments, and taken under their numbers, will be included in this limit. For example, if you have already taken 45 hours of philosophy courses and enroll in a cross-listed women and gender studies course, it will not count toward your total 124 hours. Running over 45 hours will extend the number of hours needed to graduate.
Majors must take the senior seminar, PHIL 465, which is listed as a second writing course. Remember that second writing courses count as such only if you have completed 60 credits before taking them. So, if you take PHIL 465 before you have completed 60 credits, it will not fulfill your second writing requirement, but will fulfill your senior seminar requirement.
Note that many philosophy courses may be used to meet CAS and university breadth requirements as well counting toward the major or minor. (However the CAS groups, A-D, require work in at least two different departments.)
The department currently does not have any special DLE courses. Options to satisfy the university DLE requirement include: study abroad, teaching assistantship, internship, independent study (Phil 366), or a DLE course in another department. (Discuss these options with your advisor.)
P/F courses may only be used as free electives and will not count toward the major or minor. You are limited to one P/F course per semester, and 24 credits toward the degree.
Repeated courses count only once toward your degree.
Substitutions for the major requirements require the approval of the department chair. Exceptions to other requirements require the approval of the Dean, and require substantial justification.
