Your Gift Will Make a Difference, Be a Victor for Our Students Today!

Our Candace Bolter Scholarship is now less than $2500 away from reaching endowment status.  Endowment of this scholarship is crucial in supporting our future Philosophy majors - please consider your gift today. 


The Department of Philosophy offers a wide range of interesting and challenging courses, designed for Philosophy majors and minors, general education students, and students majoring in the many other disciplines that connect naturally with Philosophy.

For students majoring in Philosophy, our program provides preparation for graduate work, or for employment in any field that requires analytical training, cogent reasoning, and clear self-expression.  Many of our majors have succeeded brilliantly after graduating from UM-Flint with a BA in Philosophy.  While some students have gone on to earn degrees from top-tier philosophy doctoral programs, others have earned law or medical degrees from the very best professional programs.  If you are interested in exploring your future options, we recommend you meet with our department faculty so that we can work with you to put together a strong application package.  Please see our Department Advising page for more information.
