Tutoring

Philosophy Club

Philosophy club meetings are an opportunity for students to meet informally with one another and with faculty members to discuss philosophical topics or any other subject. Club meetings usually take place at the Morgantown Brewing Company on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM. All are welcome, so feel free to stop by!

The Philosophy Club also hosts screenings of movies and other events throughout the semester.

Devin Curry is the Club's faculty adviser and Logan Wotring is the Philosophy Club president. Get in touch with either of them if you have questions about the Club; you can also find out more about the Club on its Facebook page, WVU Philosophy Club, or its Instagram page.


Club

Coffee Hour

The Philosophy Club organizes several Coffee Hours throughout the academic year. At a typical Coffee Hour, a philosophy faculty member takes about 20 minutes to introduce a philosophical subject or problem and then audience members are invited to participate in an informal discussion of the topic. Faculty members from other departments, as well as philosophy students, are also often invited to lead Coffee Hours.

Student Jobs

The Philosophy Department occasionally has work-study opportunities in its office for students. These opportunities are available to majors and non-majors alike. Contact Ken Enoch if you have questions about working for the philosophy department. 

Conferences & Speakers

Each year, the department hosts several conferences. These include the "in-house" conference which features work from WVU faculty and students (student presenters receive a cash prize for having their work selected), a national undergraduate philosophy conference, and the Mid-Atlantic Philosophy of Language Workshop. In addition, throughout the year, the department brings in notable philosophers from around the world to give public lectures. Some of these lectures are tied to larger annual events such as Applied Ethics Day. Up-to-date information about departmental events can be found here.
