Below you will find descriptions for courses offered in this field of study. You will find a general overview of the topics covered and any prerequisite course or grade requirements, credit value and exclusions.

The first digit of the course indicates the general level. Those in the 1000 series are introductory degree level. Courses at the 2000, 3000, 4000 series are typically available to students in the second, third, and fourth year. Courses numbered at the 5000 level or above are graduate level. Courses listed at the 0100 or 0200 series are technology level courses. Courses below the 0100 level are generally non credit courses.

Some courses are listed as exclusionary to one another. This means that students may not obtain credit for both courses as designated. 

Not all courses are offered each year. Please consult the current timetable for this year’s offering. For further information please contact the department, or visit the department's website.

Course Descriptions

NOTE: Many courses are listed as being exclusionary to one another. This means that students may not take both courses so designated.

NOTE: Courses at the 4000 level are intended for advanced undergraduates with a strong background in philosophy. It is assumed that normally a student will have already taken relevant courses at the 3000-level. Courses with titles beginning "Topics in..." have no description, since the selection of topics and instructor is determined after the time of calendar preparation. These are seminar courses. Interested students should consult the department for up-to-date information.
