PHIL 495: Professional Internships

The Department of Philosophy has developed a new undergraduate internship initiative helping our majors and minor to apply their academic background to the workplace.

We have designed a course (PHIL 495: Professional Internship) to couple with real experience in appropriate non-profit, public, research, or private organizations.

The course therefore enables students to make professional connections between their work in Philosophy and potential employment paths after graduation. Students will seek internships through their own initiative and all internships are subject to departmental approval.

Pre-law/pre-med workshop

Our department runs an annual personal statement workshop for students applying to law or medical school. The workshop teaches students in these pre-professional tracks how to write a personal statement and provides a space for everyone to share their drafts and benefit from faculty and peer feedback. Open each fall to seniors majoring or minoring in Philosophy, the workshop is capped at ten students and attendance at each weekly session is expected.
