The New Majors Cohort Program – 2022W


About the 2022W Program

UBC Philosophy’s Cohort Program started as a pilot project and is being developed every year so it can be best tailored to our undergraduate student needs. Therefore every year you might find a new format and new content as we are on our learning path along with our students.

The program is meant to be developed taking into account surveys results and gathering feedback from our students. The Cohort is meant to be designed for our majors, combined and honour undergraduate students. In 2022 the program will take a slightly different approach both in terms of content and structure. The Cohort Series will allow our students to build relationships with fellow philosophy undergraduates, spend time reflecting and discussing how they want to approach their philosophical education (post-graduation) and have the chance to participate in an informal discussion with instructors outside of the classical course.

We developed two core sessions for the 2022W Series. For more information visit our canvas page, using the link below:

About the Program

UBC Philosophy’s New Majors Cohort Program is a new, four-month program in which new philosophy majors, combined majors, and honours students will build relationships with fellow philosophy undergrads; spend time reflecting on and discussing how they want to approach their philosophical education (pre-and post-graduation), and have the opportunity to talk philosophy with instructors outside of the classroom.


Our next program intake will be in the winter of 2022. Please note the format of the cohort for this year changed as per the above information.
