Reasoning and Exposition Minor

Coordinator: Rosalind Carey
Steering Committee: TBA

The Interdisciplinary Minor in Reasoning and Exposition provides students with courses that develop skills of critical thinking, quantitative literacy, and persuasive communication. While these are outcomes for many, if not most liberal arts and sciences courses, this minor allows for their concentrated and sustained development. Students completing this minor will develop capacities for thought, understanding and expression essential for graduate research and professional programs.

Students satisfy the requirements by taking the following six courses:

PHI 169 Critical Reasoning


PHI 170 Introduction to Logic


ENW 201 Writing Essentials


PHI 230 Intermediate Logic


SOC 348 Reasoning with Data
