Welcome to the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Northeastern University. Our department is filled with faculty and students who love to think, read and talk about “the big questions” and the intersection philosophy, religion and the contemporary situation in which we find ourselves. We have an active research faculty and an award winning group of students whose career plans range from heading off to graduate or law school to careers in public relations and human services.
The Department is home to The Ethics Institute which organizes workshops and round tables on contemporary moral issues and has recently inaugurated a Visiting Scholar Program. Our philosophy club is an active group of undergraduates who gather weekly for dinner and discussion of faculty and student presentations.
