PHIL 110-PHIL 120 are prerequisites to the major and may be used to meet general education requirements for the B.A. or B.S. Under the direction of their philosophy advisors, students should select philosophy electives based on their educational and career goals. Majors must take a major field examination and assemble a portfolio consisting of three writing samples at approximately 3,000 words each from advanced classes. One sample must be on the history of philosophy, one on value theory and a third on an elected philosophical topic.
