About Philosophy

Students around a laptop

The Philosophy Department offers several major and minor undergraduate programs, a one-year MA program, and two four-year PhD programs: a PhD in Philosophy and a PhD in Applied Philosophy.

Our PhD in Applied Philosophy is a new program that focuses on engaging with and reflecting on real situations and problems. For more information, see our flyer.

Philosophers in our department value engagement with scholars in other fields such as the natural and social sciences, history, mathematics, and engineering. We find these interactions generate novel perspectives on philosophical problems and enrich our contributions to philosophical debate.

The main offices of the Department of Philosophy are located in Hagey Hall, rooms 358 and 320. Our friendly staff are always ready to help.
