Special Opportunities for Philosophy and Religion Students

Students in the Philosophy and Religion student commons


Take advantage of the many special opportunities available to you! The department offers a Philosophy and Religion Club (Symposium Society); conferences and seminars, including a visiting lecturer series; and a publication, The Gadfly , for students and the WCU community.

Look for classes with a travel and training component and you could go to a conference in Washington, D.C. with your professor and classmates.

You’ll also work closely with your adviser to set your course schedules and pursue scholarships or study abroad opportunities. Your adviser can meet with you to discuss your academic long-range plan and your next semester plan. Advisers help you take the courses you want to take while you meet graduation requirements.
