Philosophy as Part of a Double Major

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.

Bachelor of Liberal Studies

Build a bridge to some other discipline by combining a minor in philosophy with a minor in that second field to get a Bachelor of Liberal Studies.
