Colloquium Student Requirement Information
The last integration of the discursive nature of philosophy into our curriculum involves students attending a minimum of 12 colloquium talks during the course of their major in order to achieve credit for PHIL 3900.
For a variety of reasons, the colloquium series isn't always the most accessible option (talks may be timed in ways that are inconvenient; it may be that traveling to and from talks is a challenge. This is particularly distressing to philosophy majors who need these talks for the colloquium credit.
If you find yourself in this position please reach out to the chair to find out if some talk posted by another part of UMD or another university can qualify for the colloquium credit. If the chair agrees, after you've attended the talk, use this form to create the record needed for you to be given credit.
