Department of Philosophy

Website: www.iup.edu 'philosophy

Sherrill J. Begres, Chairperson; Caraway. MacLeod. Rives. Rubenstein;
and professors emeriti Boone. Bouffard. Hermann

The program in philosophy is designed to provide the student with a
capacity for thinking clearly, with a critical attitude, and with the ability to
reason theoretically.

Major _^_

The major offers the background required for graduate work in philosophy.
Those whose primary interests are in other disciplines will find philosoph)
courses that relate dircctlv to their fields on a theoretical level Both the
minor and double major are especially desirable for their reflective benefits
and because of the essentially interdisciplinary nature of philosophy.

Individually Designed Philosophy Minor

As a minor, philosoph) has much to offer in helping individuals of various

backgrounds better understand the fundamental assumptions of their
disciplines For that reason, the minor in philosophy will be individually



designed to meet special carcci needs and personal interests. Selection ol

courses will be accomplished through discussions with and approval ol the
department advisor. Students must expect careful planning in anj pro

approved I or furthei explanation and suggestions, see explanation under
Philosophy Minor program requirements and consult department advisor

Liberal Studies Offerings

1 he Philosophy program's Liberal Studies courses arc all introductory in
nature; none of them presupposes any philosophical background. The
student may choose from PHIL 101, 120. 221, 222. and 223.

Pre-Law Track

The Department of Philosophy participates in the University Pre-Law
1'rack program whereby a student majors in one of several academic
disciplines including philosophy and also meets the pre-lavv track require-
ments. Students interested in the philosophy major pre-lavv track should
consult the departmental pre-lavv advisor. Philosophy courses included in
the pre-lavv track program are PHIL 101. 222. and 450. Philosoph) Pre-
Law Track majors are required to take PHIL 101 and 222.

Philosophy Honors Program

The honors program is open by departmental invitation to Philosophy and
Philosophy Pre-Law majors with a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA and a
3.5 GPA in Philosophy courses. Students complete PHIL 480 II . 4K3 II .
and HNRC 499. which fulfills the Liberal Studies Synthesis requirement. To
determine how honors track courses will be integrated into existing
requirements for the Philosophy or Philosophy Pre-Law major, students
should consult their advisors.

An) student satisfying the GPA requirement at the end of his or her third
semester at IUP will be automatically advised of the requirements of the
honors track and invited to participate.
