We are a small department where students enjoy getting to know outstanding faculty members who bring their cutting edge research to their teaching. Philosophical issues comes to life in our courses as students learn key skills: how to think critically and analytically about difficult questions that cannot be studied experimentally; how to construct and assess arguments; and how to write clear and incisive essays.
2018-19 promises to be an exciting year. We are growing – welcome to our new faculty members, Professor Christian Pfeiffer and Lecturers Mark Fortney and Jacob Stump. All of our faculty are adding new and updated courses. Our Association of Philosophy Students is planning more events than ever. Last but not least, second semester will see us move from our portable into a new permanent department space. Please check out all our news and initiatives.
