The department offers a wide range of courses in various traditions of philosophy, with strengths and a well-established reputation in the history of philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of art as well as other central topics. We also have affiliated faculty members in the Law School, the Classics Department, the Linguistics Department, the Political Science Department, and the Divinity School, and have close connections with the Cognitive Science Program. Our undergraduate major is thriving, in no small part, because of the excellent teachers on our faculty. Our graduate program welcomes students from various backgrounds, and our placement record for graduate students is excellent.
The Department's main office is located in New Haven's oldest building, Connecticut Hall, on Old Campus, across the West Side of the Green, through Phelps Gate (right by the statue of Nathan Hale). Click Directions on the left for travel directions.
