Analytical Reasoning, Certificate

(Code 400-602)

For advising, contact the Philosophy and Religious Studies Department.

The Analytical Reasoning Certificate is for students in a variety of majors and minors, especially for students interested in a career in the law, as well as for students who are interested in Philosophy but for whom a philosophy major or minor might be impractical.  The Analytical Reasoning Certificate is a natural complement to any program of study outside of Philosophy.

Minimum of 15 credits required, including:
At least one of the following courses, but no more than two may be taken:
Logic and Critical Thinking
Symbolic Logic
Elementary Statistics
Remaining credits from other PHIL courses, with at least six credits at the 300-level or above
With advisor approval the following may be applied to the certificate:
Up to three credits from Independent Study or Directed Studies courses
Additional relevant courses

NOTE:  Courses applied to the certificate cannot be applied to the student's major.  Students cannot pursue the Philosophy Major and Analytical Reasoning Certificate to meet graduation requirements for completing a first and second degree program.
