One of the goals of the Department is to keep our alumni involved. Most importantly this relates to staying in contact with people. Not only is it a good idea to check in with former professors but it is a good idea for alumni to check in on current students to offer pointers, advice, or opportunities.

Graduating seniors (and other recent graduates): please take a moment to fill out our program assessment survey! This is a chance to give us feedback on how well we did in meeting our goals for you, and how well our goals fit with your own goals and expectations. The survey is primarily designed for current and recent graduating Philosophy majors, but is open to anyone connected to our program, including alums, minors, and those who left the program without a degree. We are interested to hear from you all.   If for some reason the hyperlink above does not work, please navigate to the following URL:  Thank you very much for your time!
