The department has provided up-to-date course descriptions for students and parents. The section entitled "Recently Offered" has listings of courses as they have been specifically described by the professors. Also, you will find tabs with more general (official, catalog) course descriptions. The course listings for the upcoming Spring 2015 semester are posted! Look up classes to add to your upcoming schedule.
Looking at what has recently been offered gives you a clue as to what may be taught in the course the next time it's offered, but it is important that you check with the professor directly if you wish a greater guarantee. You may obtain a course syllabus from the instructor for a more detailed description of class breadth and material covered.
To see when a course is offered, please check the UCD Access Portal . Click "Register for Classes," then "Search." Type in "PHIL" for the keyword description.

NOTE: Under the tabs with general course descriptions, you will see labels that say "MINOR REQUIREMENT," "ETHICS MINOR," OR "MAJOR REQUIREMENT." These labels indicate that a particular course is required for the concentration mentioned. Note that there are additional requirements for each concentration; to know what fulfills those other requirements you will need to meet with a philosophy department advisor.
