Advising

Undergraduate Student Services

The Undergraduate Student Services Officer is your greatest resource for questions about the major, related undergraduate opportunities, choosing an advisor, undergraduate events, and more. Make sure to ask about joining the Philosophy Undergraduate mailing list for undergrad news and events!

Undergraduate Peer Mentor

The Undergraduate Peer Mentor in Philosophy can answer questions about the student experience as a Philosophy major, choosing classes to take, and other student-life related matters.

How to Declare

Students can declare the Philosophy Major or Minor by choosing the appropriate major plan in Axess and submit a declaration packet to the Student Services Officer and to the Director of Undergraduate Studies. The Director of Undergraduate Studies will assign the student a major advisor, and can advise about developing a course of study, as well as answering any questions about requirements.
