Philosophy from Miami University is designed to provide both broad competence in the history of philosophy and depth in specific areas of student choosing


By providing a rigorous grounding in philosophy, here at Philosophy from Miami University, we prepare students for further graduate study.

The philosophy faculty as a whole has a diverse array of interests, although many of us have research and/or teaching focus in the history of philosophy (especially Ancient, Modern, 19th Century, and 20th Century) and our program emphasizes the development of historical competence. 

Graduates with Philosophy from Miami University will:

  • gain diverse knowledge in the range of their philosophical interests.
  • live courageous and thoughtful lives by passing on to them the rich inheritance of the philosophical tradition: its great texts, its central problems and questions, and its distinctive methods of critical thought, reflection, questioning and self-questioning, lucid argumentation, and cogent writing.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Continental philosophy 
  • Analytic philosophy
  • History of philosophy
