Graduate Programs

Our programs are inspired by the belief that philosophy matters – that philosophy makes a difference in the lives of those who pursue it in teaching, reading, writing, and acting. We provide our students with the intellectual resources needed to become critically engaged global citizens with mature cosmopolitan, moral, and political sensibilities. We exercise leadership in our university, the profession, and the discipline by combining our strengths in continental, feminist, and pragmatic philosophy with methodological pluralism and strong resources in aesthetics and the history of philosophy.

In the Stony Brook Philosophy Department, philosophy is more an activity than an artifact, more a collective vocation than a solitary pursuit.
