Joint Majors with Other Departments

Students with interdisciplinary interests may choose a joint major combining philosophy with another field: see the eight programs below. Joint majors coordinate courses from two disciplines in an integrated way combining breadth and depth. They have more courses than a single major, but generally fewer than a double major (that is, fewer than two single majors taken together). All joint majors have a faculty advisor in the Department of Philosophy with whom they should consult regularly in planning their program of study. Joint majors take the place of single majors and appear on diplomas. Thus, it is not necessary to be a joint concentrator in order to be a regular major, or vice versa, and the two cannot be pursued together.
