1. Notes for the major
- Students with a catalog year of 2011 and earlier were required to take PHI 3300: they did not have the option of taking PHI 3500 to satisfy that requirement. The department allows students from those catalog years to use PHI 3500 to satisfy their PHI 3300 requirement. To do so, they must contact the undergraduate coordinator.
- Students with a catalog year of 2008 and earlier were originally required to take PHI 3950, Philosophical Writing, as one of the area distribution requirements. Present majors under these catalog years have had that requirement waived, though it should be noted that they still need a total of 33 credits, so that in place of taking PHI 3950, they need to take another 3 hours at the 3000-level.
- Students with a catalog year of 2006 and earlier require only three hours (not six) in philosophy at the 4000-level, excluding PHI 4905 and PHI 4912.
- Students with a catalog year of 2003/04 and earlier can meet the logic requirement by taking either PHI 2100 or PHI 3130.
- Students with a catalog year of 1996/97 are required to take 30 hours of philosophy, the history sequence, and meet the logic requirement. Level distribution requirements are as above.
- Students with a catalog year of 1995/96 and earlier are required to take 27 hours of philosophy, the history sequence, meet the logic requirement, and take at least two 4000-level courses. Level distribution requirements are otherwise the same as above.
2. Notes for the minor
- Students with a catalog year of 2011 or earlier have a different distribution requirement (all the other requirements are the same). This requires that minors complete either (1) a history sequence that is, Ancient Philosophy PHH 3100 and Modern Philosophy PHH 3400, or (2) one course from that history sequence, and a logic course specifically, either PHI 2100 or PHI 3130. However, the department allows students with a catalog year of 2011 or earlier to use the 2012 distribution requirement for the minor, without changing their catalog year. To do so, students must contact the undergraduate coordinator.
