High rankings for our graduate program

A study sponsored by the American Philosophical Association, “Academic Placement Data and Analysis,” analyses academic placement records, graduate student satisfaction, and various other data for philosophy PhD programs in English-speaking countries. It recently issued its 2017 report, and we’re delighted that the report ranks us as number one both for graduate student satisfaction, and – by a wide margin – for placement of our graduates in tenure-track positions at PhD-granting institutions. For a convenient summary of the results, see here.
