Demographics

Ph.D.


Program Strengths

The strengths of the Ph.D. program at Texas A&M lie not only in specific areas, but especially in the broad philosophical training we offer in a diverse intellectual environment. We have clusters of established scholars working in Ethics, Social/Political Philosophy, Applied Ethics, American Philosophy, History of Philosophy, Continental Philosophy, Metaphysics, Decision Theory, and Logic. Our program is distinctive in requiring students to pursue a Master's degree in another field that complements their course of study. With this, our students' philosophical training is augmented by cross-disciplinary research.
