A successful exchange requires careful planning well ahead of time. Philosophy majors should discuss their exchange semester study plans with their academic advisors. A list of philosophy modules they plan to map should be submitted to their advisors and the SEP coordinator as early as possible, and certainly before they leave for exchange. In order to protect the quality and integrity of the Philosophy major program, we are careful about mapping of philosophy modules for majors, so plenty of time should be allowed for the mapping process. Normally, students should go on exchange in their second and third year. We discourage exchange during the honors year because we prefer those receiving an honors degree from us to undertake the entire honors requirement in our department. SEP mapping of honors level module is limited to 1 module.
SEP partner universities with good philosophy departments include, but are not limited to, the following:
Australian National University
University of Auckland
Chinese University of Hong Kong
University of Toronto
University of British Columbia
University of California (Berkeley, Davis, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of Texas at Austin
University of Pennsylvania
University of Virginia
University of Pittsburgh
University of Edinburgh
University of Nottingham
University of Sheffield
University of Heidelberg
Humboldt University (Berlin)
University of Copenhagen
Consult the department’s list of philosophy modules to find one with a description that matches most closely with the SEP module you wish to map. Contact the Philosophy SEP Administrator with detailed information about the module you wish to map (e.g., course description, level, credit worth, detailed syllabus, reading list, workload contact hours and assignments, etc.). If such information is not readily available from the partner university's website, you should try contacting the instructor conducting the module in the partner university to obtain that information. Without the necessary information, it is difficult for the coordinator to help you map the module. Please note that students are allowed to map back only 1 level 4000 module during their exchange programme.
