Any course with a PHL prefix may be counted toward the philosophy major. In addition two courses that fit both of the following criteria may also be counted toward the philosophy major.
- The course is deemed to have a strong philosophical content and/or methodology as determined by the chair of Classics, Philosophy, and Religious Studies;
- The course is either REL 102, World Religions, or is an upper level course in Religion, Political Science, Environmental Studies, English, Psychology, or Sociology/Anthropology.
Majors must earn a grade of C or better in all courses used to satisfy major requirements.

Such a major's choice of foreign language should be discussed with a member of the department.
