The Philosophy minor is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge of philosophy with coursework that enhances their critical thinking and reasoning skills. The minor encourages interdisciplinary connections and critical thinking about the foundations of knowledge in many fields, and emphasizes courses in ethics and value theory (ethics, applied ethics, and philosophy of art).
Students of philosophy are known to be particularly successful on graduate school admissions tests such as the GMAT, GRE, and LSAT. The Philosophy minor is available to all students and is a beneficial complement to all majors.
