Philosophy - Minor

Studying philosophy at St. Kate’s helps students develop skills they can use to expose and question hidden assumptions, challenge perceived authorities and problematic traditions, and engage a wide range of perspectives on some of life’s most fundamental questions.

Our courses are women-centered. Our courses engage diverse philosophical perspectives. And our courses teach students how to apply philosophical thinking to their everyday lives.

Studying philosophy helps prepare students for a career by developing skills in communication, critical thinking and creativity, leadership and collaboration, and ethics and social justice.

Everyone in the College for Women is welcome to become a philosophy minor. Students take at least five philosophy courses and two of them will be upper level courses (Topics 2994 or courses at 3000 or above). Students get to choose all of their courses based on their interests.
