Admission to the Ph.D. in Philosophy
Apply to the graduate program via the Office of Graduate Studies online application system.
In addition to the general admission requirements from the Office of Graduate Studies, applicants are expected to have taken the following seven courses or their equivalents as preparation for graduate work:
- symbolic logic
- history of ancient philosophy
- history of modern philosophy
- history of 20th-century analytic philosophy (roughly from Frege to Quine)
- history of 19th/20th-century Continental philosophy
- value theory
- metaphysics/epistemology (broadly construed to include philosophy of language and philosophy of mind).
Students may be admitted without some of these courses, but they are expected to make up the deficiencies early in their graduate careers and outside of the minimum hours required for degree.
For additional information, including relevant deadlines and a list of required supplemental documentation to be submitted with the online application, please visit the Graduate Admissions page of the Philosophy website, or contact the department Graduate Academic Advisor, Cari Ann Kreienhop, email@example.com.
