WEC Unit: Philosophy


Approximately 130 students are currently enrolled in the Department of Philosophy’s undergraduate major. The department’s 18 faculty members help students read and write their way through the histories of philosophical debate, noting that a good philosophical education not only hones students’ academic skills but also enhances their capacity to participate responsibly and intelligently in public life.

In implementing the second edition of their Writing Plan, the Department has focused on providing consistent support for graduate student TAs. This support takes the form of an annual workshop series (jointly facilitated by graduate students and faculty) and a companion website.
