This minor is designed for students interested in the logical and methodological foundations of the mathematical and natural sciences, including those who would like some of the benefits of the BS in Philosophy with a Concentration in Logic, Representation and Reasoning without majoring in philosophy.
The Minor Adviser will determine whether courses transferred from other institutions qualify for the minor. No more than two transferred courses may count toward the minor.
This minor may not be combined with any BS in Philosophy. It may be combined with any BA in Philosophy providing no more than one course is "double counted" toward both the minor and the departmental requirements of the applicable BA in Philosophy.
When the minor is combined with any other major, no more than two courses may be "double-counted" toward both the minor and the departmental requirements of the major.
