Students have the opportunity to pursue a Traditional or Applied major in philosophy. Unlike the traditional major in philosophy, the major in applied philosophy must be a student's second major program of study. Students interested in majoring in philosophy must meet with the Philosophy Program Director who will advise them on a specific course of study.
