Courses in Philosophy and Religious Studies are offered as electives for programs in other disciplines.

All 500- and 600-level graduate courses include requirements or assignments which differentiate them from their companionate 300- and 400-level undergraduate offerings. Students who have taken a course at the 300- or 400-level may not include that course at the 500- or 600- level in a graduate program, except in the case of special topics courses when the topic is not the same as that taken at the undergraduate level.
