All John Carroll undergraduates take three philosophy courses as part of the Core Curriculum requirements. Introduction to Philosophy must come first, but the other two courses can come in either order.

  • Introduction to Philosophy (PL 101): This develops basic philosophical concepts and skills.
  • Any 200-level philosophy course:┬áThese study philosophical questions in a historical context, as dealt with by the great minds in the history of philosophy.
  • Any 300-level philosophy course:┬áThese study specific philosophical areas or questions; they may also relate philosophy in a special way to the student’s major non-philosophical area of study.
