Many students would have difficulty navigating the rules, regulations, and requirements of campus life without the help of academic advisers. This spring, students in the College of Arts and Science tapped in the Department of Philosophy as their favorite academic adviser. Dr.Melnyk earned his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University; his research interests include the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of science, metaphysics, and the philosophy of psychology.
