High-Impact Learning Experiences

At Southwestern, high-impact experience are immersive opportunities that position our graduates for active, meaningful lives of engagement and achievement. 

In addition to the multiple high-impact opportunities offered at Southwestern, Philosophy majors also have the opportunity to engage in student research and/or be a part of the Philosophy club. 

Student Research

Our current capstone students are busy working on a number of independent research projects.  At Southwestern, the capstone course for majors, or Colloquium, is conceived as a collaborative workshop in which each student pursues an independent research project under the guidance of the philosophy faculty as a whole.
