The Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) is the official adviser for all philosophy majors, although most of them also seek advice in various ways from other faculty members and graduate students. Students whose primary major is in philosophy are encouraged to stop by to get advice about the upcoming semester, to talk about matters germane to their major and to their academic situation generally, and just to talk. They are welcome to stop by for such talk and advice anytime. The DUS is Professor Markus Kohl. He has an office in Caldwell Hall (104) and can be reached via email at

The Philosophy Department supports the University’s commitment to encouraging diversity and equal educational and employment opportunities throughout the University community. These values are articulated in the University’s non-discrimination policy and by the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion.
