In addition, the department contributes to the new undergraduate certificate program in AI and Big Data Ethics. The Department includes undergraduate certificate programs in cognitive sciences and interfaith dialogue.

 The College of Arts and Humanities is composed of five departments and two schools. Interdisciplinary collaboration occurs and is encouraged in the Department of Philosophy, in the College of Arts and Humanities, and with other colleges at UCF.

 Minimum Qualifications:
