The Bachelor of Arts Program teaches invaluable skills essential to any career, such as critical thinking, sound reasoning, analytical writing, and the capacity to analyze and solve complex problems.
The Master’s Program provides students with a strong grounding in the major areas of the discipline and is designed primarily for those who wish to do advanced scholarly work in philosophy, as well as in other fields.
The Department hosts a colloquium series and annual conference. Students also have numerous opportunities to attend lectures, classes, workshops, conferences, and reading groups in the Boston area.
Department Statement in Support of #FordHall2015
We, the undersigned members of the Department of Philosophy, support the recent calls for greater diversity within our community and unconditionally oppose any form of racism and discrimination. We applaud the courage of the students of #FordHall2015 and recognize the need for change. We concur with the statement sent by President Lynch on behalf of the university and are committed to doing our part. In particular, we are committed to the following:
(1) Reviewing our curriculum with special attention to issues of race and diversity.
(2) Making a significant effort to increase diversity in our graduate program and among our majors and minors.
(3) Engaging in meaningful conversation about how we, as philosophers, can contribute to making our department and the university more inclusive.
We have an opportunity to move towards making Brandeis the fully inclusive university that we have always aspired to be, and we are determined not to let it pass us by.
