Philosophy students will graduate with full development of critical thinking, reading, writing, and discussion skills, which form a solid foundation for a variety of careers

Beyond the Classroom

Research Assistants

Students have the opportunity to become research assistants (RA) within the Cognitive and Neural Science programs to which the Department of Philosophy is affiliated. RA positions are available within The Behavioral Neuroscience Laboratory, The Language and Cognitive Development Laboratory, and the Noesis: Philosophical Research Online project.

Professional Conferences

Students greatly benefit from presenting their research results or papers at local, regional, and national conferences. Giving formal presentations not only prepares students for graduate school, but also provides them the opportunity to network with potential employers. One conference students frequently attend is the Steven Humphrey Student Philosophy Colloquium.
