Three-Year Graduation Plans

The three-year graduation plan was created to demonstrate that it is possible for you to graduate in six regular and three summer semesters with a degree in philosophy. However, a three-year graduation plan is not designed for every student, and it assumes:

  • The student will take 18 hours each regular semester and six hours each summer.
  • The student does not require any remedial coursework.
  • The student does not fail any classes.
  • The student does not change either the major or minor.
  • The student is willing to take classes each summer.

Also, a three-year graduation plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring with you upon admission to the University.

Two degree options

The philosophy program provides two options for completing your degree in philosophy: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. Both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Philosophy are non-comprehensive degree options, which require that you complete a minor.

For a Bachelor of Arts degree, you will need to complete 12 hours of a foreign language, History 103 and History 104, a philosophy course and six hours of fine arts in addition to your major courses.
