Prerequisites: 21 credits in religion or philosophy, junior or senior standing and permission of the instructor. (Either semester/1 credit)
Outstanding students in religion or philosophy, particularly those intending to proceed to graduate school, should consider the value of producing one carefully crafted, substantial and thoroughly revised paper. In all likelihood, this paper would be a revision and expansion of a paper written for a previous course in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. The final product should be 15 to 20 pages, revised under the supervision of a faculty member of the department. The author will defend her or his paper before departmental faculty and student majors.
