Bridge Reading Courses

Certain philosophy courses contain special units of instruction known as “Bridge-readings.” “Bridge-readings” comprise of a packet of articles connecting philosophical traditions to other disciplines. The purpose of such readings is to encourage students to identify philosophical precedents and issues within their major course of study. Instead of taking the final examination, students are invited to write a final paper that explores the interdisciplinary connections between the philosophy course and their major discipline. Interdepartmental assistance is often available to support such interdisciplinary efforts.
