Off-Campus Study

Of the nine courses required of the philosophy major, at least five must be taken at Bowdoin; of the five required for a minor, at least three must be taken at Bowdoin.

Students who wish to complete the major or minor are strongly advised to take Philosophy 2111 and 2112 at Bowdoin; majors should also take Philosophy 2223 at Bowdoin.

In some circumstances, an appropriate non-Bowdoin course may meet one of these requirements; this will be determined by the department after review of the syllabus. Credit for neither 2111 nor 2112 will be given for a single-semester course that covers both ancient and modern philosophy; credit for 2223 will typically not be given for a course on critical thinking or informal logic.
