Graduate Studies at UW’s Department of Philosophy is vibrant. Students pursue their M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in a variety of fields. The department has special strengths in Feminist Philosophy, History of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science, and Value Theory.
Our faculty works collaboratively with many other units on campus, and our graduate students take courses in these affiliated departments and programs to augment and inform their philosophical research. Our students are currently writing dissertations on topics as diverse as undocumented immigration, ethical automaticity, and the social nature of science.
In addition, the department regularly hosts distinguished scholars from around the world to present their work to our community.
