Undergraduate Awards

 

The Department of Philosophy confers the following Student Awards as determined by the Faculty of the Department:

  • The Kathryn Anne Governal Perseverance Award, established in 2002 by the generous gift of Dr. George and Mrs. Roberta Governal in memory of their daughter, Kathryn Anne.  Kathryn earned two degrees from the UA : the Bachelor of Arts with a major in Media Arts and a minor in Journalism in 1995; and the Master of Arts in Journalism in 1998.  This award recognizes distinguished achievement by a student in overcoming personal, economic or physical obstacles in completing a degree at the UA.

  • The J. Christopher Maloney Prize in Philosophy, Politics, Economics & Law (PPEL), begun in 2013, recognizes outstanding achievement in the PPEL program.  The award is named for Chris Maloney who, as Head of Philosophy, has been one of the real driving forces behind instituting the PPEL major. 

  • The Emil R. Riesen and Austin H. Riesen Undergraduate Prize for Outstanding Achievements in Philosophy and Remarkable Overall Performance, in memory of Professor Emil R. Riesen and his son, Professor Austin H. Riesen.  Emil Riesen taught for many years in the early part of the 20th Century in what was then the UA Department of Philosophy and Psychology.  He served as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts in 1931-32.  Austin Riesen was a prominent professor of psychology at the University of California at Riverside.
