Program Strengths

Our program has strengths in the history of philosophy of science and in value theory, and has faculty working on metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of law, and the history of philosophy. Faculty maintain active research profiles and all are available to supervise MA thesis work. We are currently providing tuition waivers and stipends to 100% of our students (this number may be lower next year), and we are able to offer standalone teaching positions over the summer to some students.
