Advisor Appointments

Advisors help students choose a suitable program of study and declare a major. It is important that you meet often with your advisor to keep on track in fulfilling program requirements.

Make an appointment with an advisor.

Apart from the requirement that majors distribute courses over the different areas of philosophy, getting a fair acquaintance with the various kinds of philosophical investigation, the main point to keep in mind is that you must determine what will be the best way for you to move up from introductory courses to more advanced ones. A reasonable selection of courses should provide an introduction to the subject, sufficient breadth, and some experience of working at a relatively advanced level. One way of balancing these aims would be to take an introductory course, and then take several courses in the 300-range, especially bridge courses, followed by advanced 400-level courses in areas of special interest.
