Program Strengths

The M.A. provides both broad competence in the history of philosophy and depth in specific areas of student choosing. The department is pluralist, with particular strengths in Political theory, 19th and 20th Century Continental Philosophy, Ancient and Modern Philosophy, Feminist Theory, and Epistemology.The philosophy faculty as a whole has a diverse array of interests, although many of us have research and/or teaching focus in the history of philosophy (especially Ancient, Modern, 19th Century, and 20th Century) and our program emphasizes the development of historical competence. The number of graduate students in residence at a given time has been about 6-8. Our graduate-level seminars aim at creating a close intellectual community both among students and between faculty and students.
