The Department has an excellent placement record. Since 1996, over 70% of graduates have continued on to tenure-track academic positions. The vibrancy of the Department’s philosophical culture (as shown, for instance, by its active colloquium series), its strength in a broad range of areas of philosophy, and the outstanding reputation of its faculty combine to attract some of the nation’s most talented graduate students.
