Send Us Your News!

Dear Alumnus:

As a graduate of the Moravian Philosophy Program, we would like to share with you the most recent developments and future plans of our Department. First, however, we would like to extend an open invitation to visit any of our events, lecture series, student presentations, or Philosophy Club meetings. All of the information concerning times and dates of these events can be found on our website.

Here are some important new developments that have taken place in the Moravian Philosophy Department during the 2008-2009 academic year.

  • Hired a new Chair, Dr. Bernardo Cantens, in fall 2008;
  • Hired a new faculty member, Dr. Arash Naraghi, to start in fall 2009;
  • Added 14 new courses to its curriculum;
  • Modified and strengthened the requirements for the major and minor;
  • Created a Moravian Debate Team and competed nationally in the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl;
  • Started a Philosophy Lecture Series;
  • Organized a vibrant and active Philosophy Club; and
  • Created a new Chapter of Phi Sigma Tau, the international Honor Society for Philosophy, at Moravian College.

In the future we plan the following:

  • To develop a new Program in Global Ethics and Diversity Studies;
  • To enhance our Philosophy Lecture Series;
  • To enhance our Student Philosophy Club;
  • To develop a Philosophy Prize for Moravian Philosophy Students; and
  • To start a Moravian Philosopher’s Club, a community of intellectuals interested in philosophical issues and discussions.

We believe that the Moravian Philosophy alumni can be an important source of inspiration and motivation for our current undergraduate students. For this reason, we would like to invite you to share with us any experiences you believe our students will find interesting and helpful for their future careers or graduate studies. With this purpose in mind, we ask that you contribute some information that we believe would be good for us to know about you.

What is your current contact information?

Would you give us permission to include your name, current status (e.g. occupation), and information about your achievments on our website? ( Where Are Our Alumni?)

Why did you decide to study philosophy while at Moravian?

How did a philosophy degree help you in your career?

If you attended graduate school or law school, could you provide us with name of the University.

If you applied to law schools or graduate schools, could you provide us a list of the ones you were accepted to (even if you later decided not to attend).

How did a undergraduate philosophy degree help you in graduate school or law school?

What advice would you offer our current undergraduate philosophy majors?

Would you be willing to come on campus to speak to our current philosophy students?

 

You can either send us your information by regular mail or electronically to the Chair of the Department.
