The Department of Philosophy is noteworthy for its emphasis on the individual student's research interests. Our graduate programs provide students with the opportunity to develop as a scholar through interest groups, seminars, and faculty mentoring.

The department offers two avenues for graduate education:

  • MA in philosophy
    For students with a career outside of philosophy who would like to add an advanced degree in philosophy to their credentials.
  • PhD in philosophy
    For students preparing for an academic career in philosophy or other related disciplines.

We also offer a graduate minor to students enrolled in other University graduate programs.

CLA’s Graduate Programs Office offers graduate students access to funding resources, health and supportive services, diversity initiatives, and other valuable information.
