B.A. or B.S. in Interdisciplinary Philosophy

This major is designed for students whose studies in philosophy intersect with work in a complementary discipline, such as Political Science, Physics, Mathematics, Art History, and more. The requirements for this concentration allow 9 credit hours from another discipline to replace 6 credit hours in philosophy. For students with wide-ranging interests, this is a faster pathway to the major.
