Student Resources


As you dive deeper into the world of philosophy, you'll find a myriad of resources available to enrich your studies. Websites like Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy are extensive and peer-reviewed, providing reliable information on a wide array of philosophical topics. Don't overlook your college's library; physical books and scholarly articles are invaluable resources. Engage with your professors and join philosophy clubs on campus to actively participate in debates and discussions - such forums offer insight beyond what you can glean from individual study. Also, online forums like the subreddit r/philosophy or Philosophy Stack Exchange can provide a vibrant community of thinkers with whom you can discuss complex ideas. Lastly, podcasts and YouTube channels dedicated to philosophy can make the subject more approachable, especially when you're grappling with tough concepts.

Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies

The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies offers a major in Philosophy and a major in Religious Studies.  A large plan (60 credits) and a small plan (50 credits) are available for both the philosophy major and religious studies major.  Specific requirements for these plans can be found at the Religious Studies Major and in the Online Catalog.

Please direct any questions regarding our programs to the department chair, Dr. Matthew Altman (matthew.altman@cwu.edu), or contact philo@cwu.edu.
