The integrative major enables students to take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of philosophy and integrate courses outside of philosophy into their philosophy major. Of particular importance is the rationale. Students are required to write a thoughtful, one-page paper (roughly 250 words) that addresses how their three chosen courses work together to complement their study of philosophy. In past years students have integrated coursework from a broad range of departments, such as English, Religion, Classics, Dance, Political Science, Economics, Psychology, Biology, and Mathematics, as well as programs such as The Great Conversation Program and Public Affairs Conversation. The integrative major is ideal for students who want to tailor their philosophy major to their personal and professional interests. Students who wish to follow the integrative path are required to submit the completed integrative major form and rationale to the Department Chair.
