[PHIL 385] Colloquium in Philosophy
An opportunity for advanced students in philosophy to develop a research project on a philosophical topic of their choosing. Through the semester, students will develop the tools for undertaking such a project, from framing the project well with a focused question or problem, to researching how contemporary philosophers have engaged the topic, to finding their own voice as a contributor to an ongoing conversation in the philosophical community. The course will involve multiple opportunities to orally present ongoing work, and will culminate in a final paper. As a capstone, we will also discuss the value of a philosophy major and how to communicate it to others.
