The Department of Philosophy at Miami University has ten full-time faculty members with a diverse array of research interests, and offers a broad range of courses and research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students.  We are committed to a pluralist outlook and offer courses in both the Analytic and Continental traditions, and in the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of law, feminist theory, and the philosophy of science, with the history of philosophy emphasized as the common ground of all these.  For undergraduates, the department offers a major and two minors (in History of Philosophy and in Ethics, Society, and Culture), as well as three Thematic Sequences. For graduate students, we offer a two-year M.A. with funding available for most students.
