The Philosophy Law, Morality & Society (track) is designed to cater to students with a specific career interest in law, public policy or politics.
All students majoring in philosophy and not writing an honors thesis must complete a total of nine courses (27 credits) in philosophy. All students majoring in philosophy and writing an honors thesis must complete ten courses (31 credits). In this case, honors thesis work in PHIL 4990 Honors Reading (3 c.h.) and PHIL 5000 Honors Thesis (4 c.h.) counts for two courses and seven credits. (One of these seven credits is a writing requirement credit.) In addition to the standard major, the department offers two more specialized tracks within the major: Law, Morality, and Society; and Language, Mind, and Knowledge.
