The Philosophy Department is home to world-renowned faculty members, talented graduate students and dedicated staff members. Our administrative offices are located in the Social Sciences building, room 213.
Philosophy faculty at the University of Arizona enthusiastically teach at all levels of the curriculum and invite students to think deeply and clearly about the questions that matter to us all. Most courses (including lower-division courses) consist of less than 100 students, and our faculty and graduate students are available and approachable.
The University of Arizona's Philosophy Department is consistently ranked in or near the TOP 10 philosophy programs year after year, alongside Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Yale and NYU, because of our outstanding faculty contributions.
Courses taught by our grad students are of superior quality as well, because entry into UA Philosophy's Ph.D. program is rigorously competitive. Our graduate students are as committed to quality teaching and reasearch as our faculty.
