Double Counting Policy
(For 400 level Courses taught at Gonzaga)
Students taking a course cross-listed with Philosophy but taken under another department or program's prefix may petition for the course to be substituted for the Philosophy 400-level requirement. Students double majoring or minoring in Philosophy and taking courses cross-listed with Philosophy but taken under another department or program's prefix may petition that the course be substituted for Philosophy credit or be double-counted for their Philosophy major or minor. NB: One course cannot count for two core requirements. See the University Course Catalogue for more information.
A course is considered "cross-listed" if the particular section of the course in which the students was enrolled had a Philosophy course number as well as a course number from another department or program. This means that if a particular section does not have two course numbers, it is not considered cross-listed, and cannot be used for Philosophy credit or double counting (unless, of course, its only course number is a Philosophy course number).
This policy is needed to clarify issues with advising. Some courses have usually been cross-listed, but that is no guarantee they will be in the future. Students should be advised that unless the particular section in which they are enrolled is cross-listed, substitution and double counting petitions will not be entertained by the Philosophy department.
This policy does not affect substitution and double-counting petitions for courses taught at other institutions.
