Our Programs

Philosophers in the Graduate Program rely on traditional and interdisciplinary methods, taking empirical, conceptual, and applied approaches. They also engage in ongoing discourse with researchers in other disciplines, including law, psychology, neuroscience, and healthcare. Students in the program are an integral part of a lively philosophical community, hosting their own annual conference as well as regular philosophical and social events.


Our Master's program offers rigorous training for students to prepare them to be strong candidates for admission to PhD programs.
