HONORS IN PHILOSOPHY

Director: Dr. Andrea Pitts 

The Philosophy Honors Program is an intensive research experience. It is excellent preparation for the type of work students will need to do in graduate programs in philosophy and other humanities disciplines (such as literature, cultural studies, etc.). Given the interdisciplinary nature of our program and our faculty's research, philosophy honors students can easily pursue interdisciplinary projects in areas such as practical and professional ethics, women's and gender studies, and environmental studies.
