Class description

This course was created so that incoming students could learn more about the program in philosophy and so that students could make more intelligent decisions as to whether to pursue a degree in philosophy and, if so, how to best pursue that degree. The course will introduce students to individual faculty members, areas of study in philosophy, undergraduate organizations and resources, and special programs. Class participation is required. There will also be short writing assignments. TEXT: Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy, Audi, ed.
