Student Organizations

Students in philosophy and religious studies have organized a club called the Symposium. This group is open to all students who wish to discuss current ideas and issues in philosophy and religious studies in an informal setting. The Symposium also sponsors outside speakers. Additionally, the department sponsors Phi Sigma Tau and Theta Alpha Kappa, national honorary student organizations that recognize superior academic performance in philosophy and religious studies, respectively.
