Why Choose the Philosophy Minor? - Program Spotlight

Philosophy is the basis of any discipline, whether it is science, math, medicine, literature, legal studies, history or technology.

In addition, the minor allows students to develop writing and critical thinking skills that are essential to job placement and advancement.
