First-Year Interest Groups

Designed to bring together students with similar interests or academic goals, First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs) utilize block scheduling to create learning communities and simplify registration to two clicks. As part of First-Year Student Orientation, students will be invited to sign up for a FIG based on their interests and placement.

Minorities and Philosophy (MAP)

MAP is an organization designed to celebrate and promote voices, perspectives and work from groups that are marginalized or underrepresented in mainstream philosophy, and to discuss and address issues faced by members of those groups in the classroom, profession or society. MAP has chapters at universities all over the world; Wayne State's chapter was founded in 2018.

All students are welcome to participate in MAP and we especially encourage members of underrepresented groups to consider participating or joining us for meetings and events. For more information about our MAP chapter or to be added to our mailing list, please contact Professor Josh Wilburn.

Political Philosophy Club

A student organization for those interested in the study of ancient and contemporary political philosophy.
