Liberal Arts – Philosophy Transfer
Students planning to pursue a Philosophy degree at a four-year institution follow the Liberal Arts program requirements while at Kirkwood, completing general education and elective courses that prepare them for transfer. Philosophy courses can apply toward humanities and elective requirements needed for the Associate of Arts degree.

Academic Advising: Students interested in studying Philosophy work with the Advising and Transfer Center staff for course selection. Kirkwood has articulation agreements with all three state universities and many other four-year institutions in the state, including a 2+2 agreement with the University of Iowa. It is recommended that you work closely with your advisor to ensure that you are aware of specific requirements for the institution you will attend, such as foreign language, laboratory science, diversity and grade point average.

Support from the Department: The Philosophy faculty sponsors a Philosophy Club. For more information contact The Arts and Humanities department faculty and staff are available to discuss specific courses, independent study and honors projects.  
Scholarships: There are scholarships available through the Kirkwood Foundation. Recipients are chosen through the Kirkwood Scholarships process. To view the process, click here.
Transfer Plan: To transfer to a four-year college or university and major in Philosophy there, complete the Kirkwood Liberal Arts A.A. degree. Fulfilling electives with credits in philosophy and ethics provides opportunities to explore the discipline of Philosophy, build your resume and prepare to transfer. To view the plan, click here.
