About the Philosophy program

The department of Philosophy at the University of Oklahoma offers broad training in the major fields of philosophy. We are highly ranked in a number of fields: philosophy of religion, Chinese philosophy, and aesthetics, and also have particular strengths in epistemology, philosophy of language, virtue ethics, political philosophy, and the history of modern philosophy. We also have a close association with the Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, directed by Philosophy Professor Nancy Snow.

An excellent teacher-to-student ratio combined with small class size assures students of a program of study with extensive interaction with faculty. In addition to classes and seminars, the department offers a rich and lively philosophical environment with an emphasis on informal interaction between faculty and students. The department has an active program of visiting speakers, graduate students and faculty organize a wide variety of reading groups, and the University Libraries have large and comprehensive holdings in philosophy.
