The undergraduate concentration in philosophy offers courses covering all of the main areas of the discipline, from epistemology and metaphysics to philosophy of religion, philosophy of literature, and feminist philosophy. It also offers courses covering all the various periods in the history of philosophy.

Concentrators can expect to strengthen their knowledge of and skills in ancient philosophy, early modern philosophy, logic, epistemology, metaphysics and philosophy of value. More generally, learning to do philosophy involves learning to think critically, to uncover and question hidden assumptions, and to write clearly and concisely.

Students with questions about the concentration should contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies, David Christensen.
