Advising

Undergraduate Advising

Erin McKenna, Director of Undergraduate Studies, serves as the official advisor for all philosophy majors and minors. Normally, one or two graduate students in philosophy assist the Undergraduate Studies Director.  The advising assistants for the academic year 2017-2018 are Paria Akbar Akhgari and Jon LaRochelle.

Students should plan to meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies when first declaring their major or minor in philosophy. They should also plan to meet with an advisor at least once each year to discuss their academic interests, progress, and plans. To avoid delays in graduating, students are expected to meet with an advisor during the spring before they begin their senior year (or at least three terms prior to their expected graduation).

In addition to advising students on program requirements and current course offerings, the Director of Undergraduate Studies also advises students concerning transfer credits in philosophy, philosophy credit for courses taken during study abroad, and preparation for graduate study in philosophy.

Students interested in the ethics minor should email the ethics minor director, Nicolae Morar (ethicsminor@uoregon.edu), to schedule a meeting, or meet with one of our advising assistants (advising hours are listed below). More information about ethics minor requirements is available here:  http://blogs.uoregon.edu/philosophy/undergraduate/ethics-minor-requirements/

Students interested in combining philosophy with pre-law study may meet with Naomi Zack (during Fall 2017 and Winter 2018) or Colin Koopman (during Spring 2018), who serve as the department’s pre-law advisors.
