Help the Candace Bolter Scholarship Reach Endowment!

On Giving BlueDay, we asked donors to make a gift to Philosophy for our Candace Bolter Scholarship. We are now less than $3,000 away from having it reach endowment status. Once endowed, the scholarship will always be available to fund future Philosophy students. Please continue to give to help us to help others study Philosophy! (For ease of use, please use the "Candace Bolter Gifts" button located in yellow on the right hand side of your screen!)


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.
