Degree Programs and Requirements
At CCU, philosophy majors will experience a rigorous curriculum in Logic, the History of Philosophy, and the traditional disciplines of Epistemology and Metaphysics. Most importantly,our Philosophy majors will be immersed in the study of Ethics. A required course in Ethical Theory will introduce the student to the core ethical theories of Western philosophy. Building upon that foundation, our Philosophy majors will select at least one additional course in applied ethics (Business, Bio-medicine, Environment, Contemporary Moral Issues). This concentration will culminate in a required capstone senior thesis course in Ethics. The special topic for the capstone course will be chosen by the student in consultation with the Philosophy faculty. Elective courses in Philosophy can include Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Religion, Social and Political Philosophy, Existentialism, Technology and Human Values, and Philosophical Themes in Literature.
