We are a lively community of philosophers with a wide range of theoretical and practical interests. We offer a M.A. in Philosophy, a B.A. in Philosophy, a minor in Philosophy, and a minor in Law and Philosophy.

Our traditional strengths in philosophy of mind, epistemology, ethics, and medieval philosophy are central to the Department. Our students operate the Philosophers' Forum.
