Advising for Philosophy Majors

The philosophy department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies is Professor Carrie Figdor. Prof. Figdor handles inquiries about the major, honors in the major, combining the major with study abroad, registration authorization, and other undergraduate-related issues. She can help with any questions. Her email is carrie-figdor@uiowa.edu. Her office is EPB 260 and her office phone is 335-0093. 

In addition, Kyle McEvilly is the primary philosophy advisor for CLAS. He is also available for help with any questions at kyle-mcevilly@uiowa.edu / 335-2065 -- and is available at 168 Schaeffer Hall.

Philosophy majors are also assigned an advisor from the Department's Undergraduate Studies Committee, on the basis of the first letter of the student's last name, but do feel free do talk with any of us (if that works better in terms of scheduling, etc.).
