Student Research

The Philosophy Section strives to support and recognize our students' research and writing in philosophy.

Undergraduate Symposium and Graduate Research Conference

Every year several of our students present their original research at EMU's Undergraduate Symposium and Graduate Research Conference. Sharing the results of your research at these events gives you the valuable experience of presenting at a conference and lets others recognize your scholarly work.

M.A. Theses, Coursework Papers and Projects

In addition to regular coursework, students may undertake a research project for credit toward graduation. Students considering a thesis, coursework paper, or project should talk with the professor with whom they would like to work.
