Program Strengths

Research strengths: The Department has special strengths in history of philosophy, metaphysics and epistemology, philosophy of mind, and ethics, both normative and applied, and philosophy of education but has faculty working in several other areas, including philosophy of language, social and political philosophy, and continental philosophy. Special strengths include Ancient Philosophy (Palmer, N. Rothschild), Modern Philosophy (Biro, Duncan), Philosophy of Language (Biro, Ray), Philosophy of Mind (Biro, Witmer, Ross), Epistemology (Witmer, Borges), Metaphysics (Ray, Witmer, Ross), and Ethics (Ahlberg, J. Rothschild, Purves). The community is small but supportive; graduate students are assigned office space (2-3 per office at present) and organize an annual graduate student conference, the Southeast Graduate Philosophy Conference. See information on the 2018 conference at http://www.phil.ufl.edu/events/2018/04/seg/index.html. Students have the opportunity to gain valuable teaching experience, and advanced students often get to teach summer courses on their own, including upper-level undergraduate courses. Financial support for graduate student travel to conferences is available, and faculty are generally quite accessible.
