Philosophy Course Descriptions
A major in philosophy serves not only as preparation for further graduate study in philosophy but also as an area of concentration in a liberal arts program. A philosophy major is appropriate for students planning to attend medical school as well as for those students interested in a career that requires critical reading and argument analysis. Such careers include business, theology and above all, law.
While the course requirements for the major should meet the ends of the liberal arts student, those students interested in graduate study in philosophy or in a career in law are encouraged to seek advice from a faculty advisor as early in their career as possible.
A minor program in philosophy requiring 18 hours of course work is also offered as well as a minor in Ethics. For more information visit the Department of Philosophy’s web page at www.nmsu.edu/~philos/.
