Philosophers ask big questions, critically explore a vast range of topics, and call into question many of our established assumptions. Our mission is to advance our discipline by producing innovative research, teaching, and service.

Our department offers both undergraduate (major, double-major, minor) and graduate (master’s) degrees.  The Philosophical Gourmet ranks our M.A. program among the top nine nationwide. The high rating of the M.A. program ensures that the undergraduate program will also be very strong.  And in fact some of our undergraduate majors are currently pursuing philosophy Ph.D.s in programs every bit as prestigious as those in which we have placed our M.A. students.
