Philosophy

200/300 level

We offer a wide variety of courses at the 200 and 300 level every year. Most of these courses survey a specific field or historical period in philosophy, though some also focus on specialized topics such as Healthcare Ethics or Environmental Ethics, Humans and Animals, Computers and Culture, and Biology, Society, and Values.  

Most of these courses do not have prerequisites and can be taken at any time during your degree.

Please consult the University Calendar for a full listing of our PHIL courses.
