The Minor in Philosophy, offered by the Department of Philosophy, is an excellent minor for careers in medicine, law and business. Career options are regularly discussed in the Undergraduate Philosophy Club and featured on the Philosophy department's web site.

Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
