The major includes courses that engage with the history of philosophy for the concerns of present-day life and culture, courses focused on social philosophy, logic, a year-long senior research seminar oriented to students’ particular interests, an internship with an agency or firm that is connected to the student’s interest, and courses in Political Science and Criminal Justice.
