The Undergraduate Mentoring Program is an initiative under USC’s chapter of Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) that seeks to pair undergraduate students with graduate student mentors, who will support them in their philosophical studies and fitting philosophy in their future career or education plans. The program also seeks to strengthen the philosophical community at USC through increasing undergraduate participation in department culture.


Undergraduate students interested in philosophy at all stages and of all pathways are welcome to apply. Students who identify with a historically underrepresented group in philosophy are especially encouraged to apply.
