The UA Undergraduate Philosophy Club is welcoming new members, as well as students interested in serving in officer positions for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Membership is open to anyone, philosophy major or otherwise! There are no dues.

The mission of the undergraduate philosophy club is to explore a wide array of philosophical topics, through speaker presentations from faculty and students, discussions, and outings—which may include going to conferences, film events, colloquia, and events so-sponsored with other campus clubs.

The Undergraduate Philosophy Club is a member in good standing of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA).
