MA and PhD in Philosophy at Albany

Applications are invited for the MA and PhD programs in Philosophy at University at Albany, State University of New York.

We will fund three incoming PhD students next year with first year fellowships and teaching assistantships in subsequent years. Eligible students entering the MA or PhD program are also encouraged to apply for Albany's Carson Carr Graduate Diversity Fellowship.

The Philosophy department at UAlbany has special strength in Global Justice & Human Rights, with faculty including Jon Mandle, Kristen Hessler, and Ariel Zylberman (starting 2018). There are also faculty working in related areas of applied ethics, including Jason D'Cruz and Monika Piotrowska.

The department also has faculty working in the history of philosophy, philosophy of science, philosophy of logic, philosophy of art, and other areas.

Our graduate students do research on a range of topics. Recent PhD graduates wrote their theses on the self in Hume's Treatise, the Precautionary Principle in policy-making, a virtue ethics analysis of abortion, perception in Plato and the Sophists, philosophy of mind in relation to autism spectrum disorders, the moral status of macabre fascination in horror fiction, and the concept of human dignity in bioethics.
