Sample First Year

In their first year working towards a degree in Philosophy, most students will take PHIL-1001(6) Introduction to Philosophy. Multiple sections of this six credit hour course are offered each year, including a section in the Spring term.

Many first-year students also take RHET-1101(3) Academic Writing: Humanities or any other section of Academic Writing (if required), and 21-24 credit hours if electives, depending on interest.

NOTE: This sample first year below is representative of courses you may take. For many of our programs, you may choose another set of courses and still be well on your way to a degree. Also, for most programs you do not have to take 30 credit hours (five full courses) in your first year.

WebAdvisor and Student Planning

Student Planning is a great online tool which students can use for degree planning, timetabling, and advanced registration. Student Planning helps students plan their courses against their degree requirements, explore options, and enables them to register for courses from an interactive timetable view. It allows students to create a multi-year plan of their courses taking into account requisites and the terms/years in which courses are typically offered. Students can plan out their whole degree from their first year to graduation.
