The Hamilton College Summer Program in Philosophy (HCSPiP) seeks twenty excellent students for an exciting, collegial two-week experience studying philosophy with other ambitious undergraduates. Three courses, chosen for their innovative pedagogies, will be offered, June 26–July 9, 2022.

  • Philosophy and Comedy, taught by Prof. Ashley Pryor (University of Toledo)
  • Philosophers Reimagine the World: A Conceptual Toolbox for 21st Century Possibilists, taught by Prof. Anthony Weston (Elon University)
  • Disagreement in the Digital Age: Philosophical Reflection About/With New Technology, taught by Prof. Michael Barnes (Western University)

The HCSPiP is designed to explore new ways to teach and learn undergraduate philosophy. Instructors are committed to active, student-centered learning and the classes may not feel like ones to which you may have become accustomed! Students in the HCSPiP will attend all three classes every day, Monday through Friday, and are expected to prepare for those classes, both before the program and during the two weeks they are on campus. In addition to the three courses, the HCSPiP may include visiting speakers, a day trip to the Adirondacks, and a July 4 celebration. To participate actively and take advantage of the opportunity, students must have exceptional intrinsic motivation for philosophical work. No college credit is awarded. We have room for ten Hamilton College students and ten students from other colleges or universities. We are hoping this year mainly to serve rising sophomores and juniors, though rising seniors are also welcome to apply. There is no tuition for the summer school. Room and board at Hamilton College will be provided. In addition, students who attend the summer school will receive a $750 stipend in addition to a travel stipend.

The application to apply is March 15, 2022. Please apply using the following link:
