Graduate Programs

‌Ph.D. and M.A. in Philosophy

The Philosophy Department of Loyola Chicago has a doctoral program and two terminal master's programs: one in philosophy, and one in social philosophy.

We have a long-standing commitment to philosophical pluralism. With one of the largest departments in North America (approximately thirty full-time faculty members), we are able to offer a wide range of graduate seminars. All Loyola students are exposed to analytic, continental, and historical approaches to a wide array of contemporary philosophical problems.

Our primary areas of focus are continental philosophy and ethics/social-political philosophy. Each of these areas is anchored by an endowed professorship. Currently, Adriaan Peperzak holds the Arthur J. Schmitt Chair of Philosophy. We have additional research strengths in the history of philosophy, philosophy of religion, and epistemology.
