The Department of Philosophy offers an undergraduate major, an honors undergraduate major, and an undergraduate minor in philosophy.

For major and minor requirements, consult the current UD Catalog. Also be sure to understand applicable University and College of Arts and Sciences requirements for a bachelor of arts degree as stated in the UD Catalog.

  • You are very welcome to contact the department with any questions about degrees or classes in philosophy.
  • Joel Pust coordinates undergraduate advising in the philosophy department.
  • For help or advice, philosophy majors should first contact their departmental faculty advisor.
