Program Strengths

The 'focus' of San Jose State's Department of Philosophy is on diversity. Thus, traditional areas of philosophy are well covered, along with many other areas. The latter include: Feminist Philosophy; African and African-American Philosophy; Buddhist Philosophy; Japanese Philosophy; Chinese Philosophy; Latin American Philosophy; Indian Philosophy; Gender Studies; and (in keeping with out setting in Silicon Valley), various perspectives on science and technology. Both traditional and other areas are reflected in the department curriculum and in faculty areas of interest (www.sjsu.edu/philosophy/contact/). In terms of professional activity (research,publication,consulting,etc.), outside reviewers have found the department to be notable nationally, to be among the top within the campuses of the California State University system, and to compare favorably with public and private PhD granting universities in the region.
