Industries, jobs, and technologies change. The Department of Philosophy empowers you to focus broadly — develop a wide knowledge base — so you can see what’s coming, and be ready to lead the way. Below is a list of courses to get you started on your life’s story.
Which Philosophy courses should I take?
For more information, talk to a Philosophy Undergraduate Advisor. We'll be happy to advise you about which course is best suited for you. This document includes general advice.
Any 100- or 200-level course is a good introduction to philosophy. If you are already interested in philosophy, we recommend you begin with a 200-level course, since the 100-level courses are larger and you would have less contact with the instructor in them.
Beyond your first philosophy course, you should choose courses based on your interests. To help you, here are some courses grouped broadly by subject. For a bulletin course description see the course listing.
