American Philosophy Graduate Programs

This wiki provides an unranked list of Ph.D. and terminal M.A. programs that have strengths in American Philosophy. Links are provided to the websites, CVs, and PhilPapers profiles of the relevant faculty at each program. Additionally, when known, the specialties and willingness of faculty members to work with new graduate students are noted. The primary intended audience is prospective or current graduate students with interests in American Philosophy who want to get the lay of the land by seeing who works where, and on what.

Note to Prospective Graduate Students

The purpose of this wiki is to aid your search for American Philosophy graduate programs that suit your tastes. It does so in two ways:

  • By listing as many American Philosophy graduate programs as possible.
  • By making research into those programs more efficient and convenient by identifying the relevant American Philosophy faculty and providing easy access to their bios, research interests, CVs, partial publication lists, etc.

However, while this site may be where your research into programs starts, it decidedly should not be where it ends. You need to dig around and do your due diligence—e.g., contact people within the programs[1]—in order to put yourself in the best possible position to make an informed decision about where to apply. Best of luck!

Standards, Practices, and Guidelines

Short Version

  1. The criterion for program inclusion is just that a philosophy program have at least one full-time faculty member who self-identifies as a philosopher of American Philosophy.
  2. The standard of evidence required to make the list is an official (or personal) university-affiliated website—or a publicly-accessible CV—that lists American Philosophy as a primary research interest.
  3. Philosophers who have made contributions to American Philosophy but who do not list American Philosophy as an AOS/AOC are usually not listed.
  4. Affiliated, part-time, and emeritus faculty who work closely with graduate students should be labelled as such inside parentheses next to their names.

Longer Version

  1. The criterion for program inclusion is just that a philosophy Ph.D. program have at least one full-time faculty member who self-identifies as a philosopher of American Philosophy. A separate list of M.A. programs can be found at the bottom of this page.
  2. The standard of evidence required to make the list is an official (or personal) university-affiliated website—or a publicly-accessible CV—that lists American Philosophy as a primary research interest.
  3. Philosophers who have made contributions to American Philosophy but who do not list American Philosophy as an AOS/AOC are usually not listed. For the most part, this wiki simply reflects the self-reports of online faculty listings, which is a way to avoid having to make judgment calls about who counts as a philosopher of American Philosophy in borderline cases. The rule of thumb is: someone counts if they say they count. That said, erring on the side of being inclusive is generally a good policy since prospective students can peruse bios, CVs, and publication lists to help determine whether they think a borderline faculty member would be potentially helpful to their American Philosophy research interests.[2]
  4. Affiliated, part-time, and emeritus faculty who work closely with graduate students should be labelled as such inside parentheses next to their names, e.g., Joe Dumit (Science & Technology Studies), website, CV, PhilPapers. It is often best to explain the role that these individuals play in programs at greater length on Wiki Program Pages. The point of listing them is to identify individuals who will potentially be of assistance to graduate students, but who might not be found on a department website.

How to Contribute

This is a wiki, so anyone can contribute. If programs or faculty have been overlooked—which is assuredly the case—you are encouraged to add them, even if you are not a member of that department. Also, information will date rapidly—especially, e.g., links to pdf CVs since their filenames often contain the (approximate) dates of creation, which change—so by all means help keep things up to date.

Wiki formatting/markup is very straightforward. Just click 'Edit' at the top of the page—or next to the entry you want to modify—and mimic the format of existing entries. Not all entries list the specialties of faculty members or whether faculty members are willing to work with new students. If that information is known, please add it, since that is very helpful to prospective students.

Every program listed also has a separate Wiki Program Page where additional information can be provided to prospective students. While the style and format of this main page should be kept consistent, individual Wiki Program Pages can take any form whatsoever. To edit one of these pages, simply follow the Wiki Program Page link underneath the department listing of interest and edit that page. To add a Wiki Program Page, follow the directions here.[3]

Programs with significant participation of affiliated faculty are strongly urged to use Wiki Program Pages for the purpose of listing them and explaining their role and involvement with American Philosophy graduate students. Simply linking on the main page to affiliated faculty in, e.g., a history department, law school, medical school, etc., is likely to be confusing to prospective students who do not know how these individuals are connected to the Ph.D. program they are researching.[4]

This site does not pretend to provide an exhaustive list of philosophy of American Philosophy graduate programs, though that is the goal. Contributing will help to achieve that goal sooner rather than later.

Notes

  1. This site is not in the business of giving prospective students advice—on how to select programs or anything else—but it can be very helpful and illuminating to contact graduate students currently enrolled in departments you are considering and asking if they would be willing to share their impressions of and experience in the programs. The worst that can happen is that they say "no." Of course, what they share must not be accepted uncritically since experiences differ, and disgruntled students will paint a radically different picture than contented ones. For that reason, seeking out multiple sources can be worthwhile.
  2. Also, as long as a department has one full-time, self-described philosopher of American Philosophy, the graduate program is listed, which makes the determination of whether other faculty count as philosophers in this area less crucial.
  3. If adding a new Wiki Program Page seems too daunting, that's fine. One is likely to be created for you after a period of time.
  4. The other downside of listing on the main page affiliated faculty whose connection to a American Philosophy graduate program is unclear is that other contributors may remove them. This is, after all, a wiki.
