UNM Department of Philosophy

About the Department of Philosophy

  • The University of New Mexico Department of Philosophy is a community of faculty and students actively engaged in a wide range of philosophical projects
  • Our department combines research strengths in both Western and Asian philosophy and offers extraordinary resources for students wishing to specialize in Continental and/or South Asian traditions, and in comparative approaches to philosophy more broadly
  • Our department is small and close-knit and has an excellent student-to-professor ratio that provides students the opportunity to receive close attention from individual faculty members
  • Our faculty members are highly regarded experts in their fields, and they continue to pursue original, cutting-edge research that earns international renown
  • Our faculty members are also highly regarded teachers - they have 10 teaching awards between them - and they share a steadfast commitment to providing our students a world-class education
  • We offer a Ph.D. program, a terminal M.A. program, three undergraduate major programs, an undergraduate minor, and a Shared-Credit Undergraduate/Graduate Degree Program that allows studemts to complete both their B.A. and M.A. in Philosophy in five years of study
  • We offer competitive funding packages to our Ph.D. students, and our incoming M.A. students have in-state tuition rates available to them from day one
  • The successful placement of our M.A. and Ph.D. students continues to be a hallmark of our graduate programs
  • We are located in Albuquerque, the largest city in a state known for its natural beauty
  • New Mexico's unique multi-lingual and multi-cultural diversity and history is reflected throughout UNM
