Your Philosophy Advisor

Faculty members are often available for advising questions after classes or during office hours, but it is best to contact your chosen professor (advisor) in advance and schedule an advising appointment.

While any faculty member of the philosophy department can serve as an advisor, the default advisor is always the department chair, Ryan Wasserman.
