  • Our department is small and close-knit. The excellent student-to-professor ratio assures close attention from individual faculty.
  • Competitive funding packages for PhD students.
  • In-state tuition rates available from day one for incoming MA students, making our MA program an unrivaled bargain.
  • Successful placement records for both our MA and PhD students. See here.
  • New Mexico is a multi-lingual, multi-cultural place, with diverse Hispanic and Native American communities unlike anywhere else. As the flagship university in the state, UNM reflects this diversity.
  • New Mexico offers unrivaled natural beauty and a lovely climate.
  • Our department offers extraordinary resources for students wishing to specialize in the Continental and/or South-Asian traditions, and in comparative approaches to philosophy more broadly.
