Graduate Programs in Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy at Duquesne University was one of the first graduate programs in the United States to specialize in phenomenology and contemporary Continental philosophy. Our program remains committed to this tradition and post-Kantian European philosophy. We also engage in teaching and research in the history of philosophy, both as as a program focus in its own right and as the necessary background for work in later continental thought.

We offer both M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in philosophy.
