The average GPA for all Philosophy courses must be a C (2.0) or better.
Philosophy Honors Program
Students must complete 9 hours of honors credits AND do an independent research project.
The 9 honors hours can be met by:
taking honors courses in philosophy;
doing up to 4 hours of independent research or
contracting a philosophy course to make it into an honors course.
These credits can all be used towards the regular major, so this does NOT require the student to take more than the normal 33 hours.
Accelerated 3 + 3 Degree
The CSU/Cleveland-Marshall College of Law 3+3 program permits a student who has completed three years of undergraduate study to be admitted to the College of Law to begin J.D. studies. The undergraduate degree will be awarded upon successful completion of the first full year of the J.D. curriculum, thus permitting the student to graduate with both an undergraduate and law degrees in six rather than seven years of full-time study (or its equivalent). In effect, the first year of law school completes the fourth year of the undergraduate degree (serving, in effect, as undergraduate elective courses) and serves as the first year of law school. This arrangement saves both time and money for the student.
