Consider combining your philosophy major with another major. Philosophy trains students in basic, portable skills such as thinking independently and creatively, analyzing and constructing arguments, communicating clearly and persuasively, and considering multiple viewpoints. So philosophy naturally complements virtually every other field.
Minor in Philosophy
The undergraduate minor in philosophy requires any five philosophy courses, at least three of which must be taken at the 3000 level or higher. Students with particular interests are encouraged to use the tracks above to organize their minor. All course work for the minor must be taken in residence in the UMSL Department of Philosophy.
Minor in Law and Philosophy
The undergraduate minor in Law and Philosophy requires five philosophy courses (15 credit hours). At least 6 hours must be at the 3000 level or above. A GPA of 2.0 or better is required in courses presented for the minor. Prospective minors are encouraged to consult with members of the department for advice in planning an appropriate sequence of courses.
