Departmental Alumni Pages


Does your philosophy department have an alumni page on its website? I’m not referring to a page limited to PhD placements, but rather one that includes bachelors and masters degree holders. It’s a great way to advertise the value of studying philosophy to prospective majors and graduate students, and to help them gain a sense of the career possibilities open to them.

A quick look around reveals a few different kinds: very brief descriptions, informative profilespersonal narratives, anonymized testimonials, and career-based lists.

Feel free to link to other good examples in the comments. Also, any tips or insights from those who’ve put together such pages or made use of them in advising students and promoting their departments would be welcome.

We have a “Meet Our Alumni” page for the Cognitive Science Program at York University, which is housed in the Philosophy Department: http://cogs.phil.laps.yorku.ca/students/alumni/
And we’re in the process of setting up a similar page for Philosophy alumni (both undergraduate and graduate). Report
