SUNY Oneonta 28th Annual
Undergraduate Philosophy Conference

The 28th annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference was held Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20, 2024.

We were honored and excited to have Dr. Sara Uckelman of the University of Durham, England deliver this year's Distinguished Keynote Address, Fiction Writing as Philosophical Methodology.

About the Department

The Philosophy Department plays a vital role in the SUNY Oneonta community. A diverse and distinguished faculty teach a wide range of courses, providing a solid foundation in both Eastern and Western philosophy. We offer a baccalaureate major with two concentrations: Liberal Arts and Applied Philosophy, and a flexible, liberal arts minor. The major combines well with other fields to form a powerful dual major. It is a particularly good choice for those who may be contemplating business, law, or medical school.

Our Philosophy students receive a lot of one-on-one attention. We sponsor an energetic Philosophy Club and host an Undergraduate Philosophy Conference that attracts students from institutions throughout North America.
