The Department of Philosophy is one of the oldest programs at the University of Michigan, tracing its origins to 1843, and hosts both an undergraduate and graduate program as well as an undergraduate concentration in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. The department has retained many illustrious philosophers on its faculty, such as John Dewey and Charles Stevenson, and ranks among the top philosophy doctoral programs nationally and globally. Our diverse faculty come together to provide a comprehensive scholarship of nearly all major branches of contemporary philosophy, each branching out into research specialties ranging from the standard areas like moral and political philosophy to more specialized fields such as feminist philosophy and formal epistemology.
