Under the direction of one member of the department, a student enrolled in this program (PHIL 3550, 4550) carries on studies (as based on a reading list), prepares for a comprehensive examination at the end of the junior year, and writes a thesis during the first semester of the senior year. Students who have an interest in this program should come to the departmental office in A-327 Brewster Building for details.
