Philosophy students have frequent opportunities for philosophical discussion and debate in various gatherings such as philosophy club evenings, philosophers' coffee hour and formal lectures of visiting scholars. The departmental faculty is available as well for spontaneous conversations on philosophical issues of mutual interest to faculty and students.
The philosophy department makes students aware of special scholarship opportunities and graduate student conferences. Summer workshops are also available to philosophy students.
The department also advises philosophy majors and other interested students about study-abroad and graduate-school opportunities.
Opportunities exist for students with exceptional interest and commitment to philosophy to act as research and conference assistants.
Students with an interest in philosophy whose graduate work is being conducted in related fields are welcome to approach the philosophy department concerning their research.
Senior philosophy students may choose to present distinguished work to the department from any of their advanced philosophy courses or from independent work in philosophy.
