1st courses in Philosophy

As part of the Core Curriculum, Notre Dame requires every student to take an introduction to Philosophy. The Philosophy Department provides a number of different ways for students to be introduced to the field of philosophy. Some are large, some are small; some are general, while others focus in on the intersection of philosophy with another field, like science, mathematics, ethics, or religion. See the links below for some details about the various options, as well as information about the current semester's course offerings.
