Departmental Awards

Departmental awards available to philosophy majors include:

The Christopher Young Memorial Essay Prize:  Established in honor of Christopher Young, a philosophy major who died in an accident shortly before he was to graduate. The prize recognizes the department's high standard of writing, and those students who achieve (or surpass) it. The prize is awarded late each Spring.

The Summer Enhancement Award:  Available for philosophy majors who have been accepted to competitive summer programs for the study of philosophy. These students serve as representatives of Auburn University in ambitious classroom environments around the country and return to enrich the other students in the philosophy major with the skills, knowledge, and professional connections they have acquired.
