A Student-centered Program
WVU Philosophy is a small and truly student-centered program that takes pride in giving one-on-one attention and helping students excel.
The WVU Philosophy is a small and truly student-centered undergraduate department. 100% of our teaching is focused on undergraduates and 100% of our classes are taught by professors. We are an energetic and dedicated faculty devoted to outstanding teaching. In fact, several of our professors have received Outstanding Teaching awards from WVU.
A Thriving Student Community
The Philosophy Lounge
Some days in the Philosophy Lounge, a lively discussion will erupt between students (and faculty) seated in comfortable chairs and couches. Other days, the Lounge resembles a quiet cafe: students hard at work, enjoying free coffee and tea. There are also several tutors available throughout the day to help with that particularly difficult symbolic logic proof.
The Philosophy Club
We also have a very active student philosophy club which exists to enable students with special interests in philosophy to get together with other students who share those interests. Students can expect a level of involvement generated in informal club meetings to equal or surpass that of their favorite philosophy class, but without the worry about grades and term papers.
