Philosophy Courses Satisfying Major and Minor Requirements

Please note that new numbers are added to our roster on a regular basis and some courses listed below are offered only once every few years, so please do not expect all of the following to appear on our roster during your time at Penn. Finally, undergraduates may take 500-level classes with permission of the instructor, and these may well satisfy distribution requirements toward the major. Please ask the undergraduate chair about individual 500-level courses if you wish to use them toward such requirements.
