PHIL 110: Introduction to Philosophy

STEP 3

Now, do a search on philosophy and your major, e.g., “philosophy and nursing.” You may have to use terms related to your major if you get no or few results. If you are undeclared, then use a subject in which you are interested, e.g., “philosophy and sex.” Here you need to find one relevant academic book and two relevant peer-reviewed journal articles. Take notes, as you will need this information for your write-up, including the bibliographic information.
