The following text is taken from The University of Findlay's undergraduate catalog.
A major in philosophy/applied philosophy consists of one 200-level ethics course; PHIL 301, 302, 303; a three- semester-hour senior capstone project (taught as PHIL 491); and at least 18 semester hours from the following list: any other PHIL courses; up to but not more than six hours from RELI 102, 200, 201, 220, 270; SOCI 420; or POLS 333. For the senior capstone project, students will be expected to narrow the focus of their studies to an area of interest that they have developed during their previous course work and/or through their experience in the field. Students will then complete a project related to this area of interest. Ordinarily, this project will be a philosophical paper worthy of publication, although it could be some other endeavor befitting a culminating university experience. All projects will be conceived and executed in consultation with and guidance by the course instructor and will require approval by the director of philosophy.
A minor in philosophy/applied ethics consists of 15 semester hours, including PHIL 100, 220, and nine semester hours from the following list: other philosophy ethics courses, RELI 270, RELI 410, or no more than three hours from PHIL 325, 333, or POLS 333. PHIL 490 or 491 may count toward a minor in applied ethics, provided the subject matter of the course is in the area of ethics. (Students may receive a minor in either applied ethics or applied philosophy, not both).
A minor in philosophy/applied philosophy consists of at least 15 semester hours in philosophy, including PHIL 100. (Students may receive a minor in either applied ethics or applied philosophy, not both).
