The Class of 2017

At Wednesday's convocation ceremony, we will celebrate the achievements of fifteen undergraduate students and six graduate students. Cheer on your friends and students at 2pm in Jack Simpson Gym.

What is the ultimate nature of reality? What does it take to know how the world works? How should we construct a just society? And how can we lead good lives?

Philosophy draws on and contributes to work in a variety of disciplines — linguistics, psychology, computer science, religious studies, biology, physics, and sociology — to investigate these questions. Philosophers develop practical reasoning and writing skills that lead to success in graduate school, business school, law school, medical school, and beyond.
