Resources for Current Students

Our program introduces you to the various areas of specialization within contemporary philosophy and the major epochs of the history of Western philosophy. From Western philosophical tradition and contemporary philosophical thought to non-Western philosophical traditions, there is plenty to learn.

Our small-class sizes give you one-on-one attention from faculty and the opportunity to collaborate with them on research. Our courses are flexible and give you the opportunity to complement your degree in our program with another major. You'll have many ways to apply your skills outside the classroom and earn honors or distinction in the program.

Senior Thesis and Distinction

In order to receive distinction in philosophy, you will need to write and defend an honor's thesis under the advisement of a Department of Philosophy faculty member. You'll pick a thesis advisor and begin conceptualizing and writing your senior thesis in your junior year.

If you have any questions about Honors or Distinction in Philosophy, contact Candace Upton, PhD, director of the Department of Philosophy's Honors Program.
