World Philosophy Day

On Thursday, November 17, 2022, in recognition of World Philosophy Day, the Philosophy Department hosted an information session for students which expounded the benefits of studying Philosophy as an undergraduate. The event also provided information about the major and minor program of study at Saint Peter’s and the various concentrations and electives available to students. World Philosophy Day is an opportunity to educate everyone on the value of studying Philosophy — not only for its own sake — but in preparation for a variety of careers, too! If you or someone you know is interested in declaring a major or minor in Philosophy, contact department chairperson, Dr. Daniel Murphy ( for more information.
