Our program has faculty strengths in most major areas of contemporary Anglophone philosophy, including epistemology, ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion, philosophy of science and political philosophy. In addition, several faculty have teaching and research interests in the history of philosophy. For more information about faculty interests, see faculty. For current and recent course offerings, see courses.
Our program and its requirements discourage narrow specialization and are designed to provide students with a broad knowledge of philosophy, which is necessary for admission to and success in a strong Ph.D. program.
