On-going project: Alumni, current students, and friends…. we’re asking for your help! Please create a 3-minute YouTube video to tell us about your experience with the Department of Philosophy and Religion. We’d like to post these on the department website to share, because we all know that word-of-mouth is the best kind of advertising! We’re thinking about new ways to connect with each other during the COVID crisis, and this is one way to do it. Please contact your favorite faculty, Dr. Duncan, or Tierra via email for support and to send us your creations.

Congratulations to our Spring 2021 Graduates!
