Philosophy majors must take at least twelve philosophy courses. Seven are required, and five are electives. The seven required courses are core courses in the history and principal areas of philosophy: Logic, Ancient Greek Philosophy, Modern Philosophy, Ethics, Metaphysics, Theory of Knowledge, and an advanced Proseminar the topic of which changes every year. All other philosophy courses can be counted as electives. Since philosophy is so universal in its scope and thus so closely tied to other studies, philosophy students are encouraged to take as many courses as possible in the humanities, mathematics, social and natural sciences, and arts, and to study one or more foreign languages thoroughly.
