The New Majors Cohort Program

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.


This program is designed for students within the first year of their major/honours/combined major program. If you have questions about your eligibility for the program, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Jillian, at:

Cohort participants will meet on a monthly basis for four core sessions (January – April 2021) with further opportunities for connection, discussion, and resource-sharing via optional group socials and the cohort’s self-enroll Canvas page. Core sessions will be 1.5 hours in length. Sessions and socials will take place via Zoom.
