Student Pathways


People often ask how experiential education works in the Philosophy and Religion department. One way to answer this question is by enumerating all the ways in which students step outside the classroom: co-ops, ethics bowl; dialogues and study abroad; research; service learning; and attending conferences. Another way to answer this question is by tracking the different pathways that individual students take through the program.

Each of them shows the unique ways in which the experiential liberal arts have shaped their studies and perspectives.
