At least 30 hours of the courses taken at WCU must be at the junior-senior level to meet one of the University’s degree requirements. Only grades of C (2.0) or higher satisfy requirements for the major.

Visit the department’s website at http://www.wcu.edu/as/philo/ to view the 8 semester curriculum guide.

NOTE: Students who pursue a concentration in Philosophy can also choose a minor in Religion and students who pursue a concentration in Religion can also choose a minor in Philosophy. These students cannot, however, use a single course to count towards both the concentration and the minor. Taking a course (like PAR 392 and PAR 393) once cannot be used to satisfy both the Philosophy and Culture and Seminar sections.
