[Appropriate courses can be pre-determined for each discipline or they can be determined “on demand,’ that is, as students apply for the Multiple Options Program.  Either way, they should be consistent from semester to semester]

 

* Only two (2) degree options have been created based on the wants and needs of students, the interests and expertise of faculty, and the versatility of the discipline curriculum.  There are many more Co-Discipline Options that can be created in relation to Philosophy, i.e. as many Major Programs as there are offered at your college or university.  Philosophy is a highly diversified Major capable of being “Co-Disciplined” by most, if not all, Major Programs at any college or university.  Consider Philosophy and Business, Philosophy and Business Management, Philosophy and Theater, Philosophy and Chemistry, Philosophy and Mathematics, Philosophy and Technology, Philosophy and Information Technology, Philosophy and Sports, Philosophy and Dance, etc.
