Academic Standards and Requirements

The highest priority of the philosophy department is to provide a place of freedom for the expression, discussion and criticism of ideas by the members of the Molloy College community.

General Education Requirements

All students are required to take a minimum of 3 credits in philosophy, and at least one 3-credit course in ethics (from either the theology or philosophy department). Any 3-credit PHI or ETH course can satisfy these general education requirements. Additional restrictions may be placed on a course by the instructor. Consult advisor for these restrictions.

Interdisciplinary Studies

For requirements in the childhood education - interdisciplinary (philosophy-English-history) major, refer to interdisciplinary studies programs.


The Philosophy department offers minors in philosophy and applied ethics. Minor requirements are described in the section of the catalog on minors.
