The UBC Philosophy Department is more than a roster of faculty and philosophy courses. We’d like to warmly invite you to get involved or to reach out to us with any questions. You do not have to major or minor in philosophy to take part.

We have a wide variety of ways you can get involved:

  • Opportunities to meet and engage with peers and faculty
  • Our New Majors Cohort Program
  • Our annual colloquia series
  • The Philosophy Essay Clinic
  • An undergraduate Philosophy Students’ Association
  • An undergraduate philosophy journal
  • Special events including distinguished speakers, conferences, or workshops
  • Advising for philosophy studies at all levels
