Epistemology, Metaphysics, Logic, Moral and Political philosophy and Aesthetics are some of the key areas of inquiry making up the Philosophy discipline. PhD candidates studying Philosophy will have the opportunity to specialize in a historical or contemporary philosophical area and may choose a particular branch, like the philosophy of religion, science, mind, ethics, languages or law. Graduates with PhD degrees in Philosophy often go on to rewarding careers in the public or private sector in academia, publishing, humanities, psychology, sociology, linguistics, economics or science.

PhD in Philosophy candidates will be required to conduct extensive research over a three to five year period, working mostly independently with guidance from post-doctoral candidates and professors. The final dissertation will be the product of many months of specialized research in the specific area of study. PhD in Philosophy candidates will also have the opportunity to work during their period of study, by teaching, writing, editing or assisting in others' research. PhD in Philosophy applicants should have at least a Bachelor's degree, and usually also a Master's degree in a related field. Demonstrated practical experience in the field is a plus, and it is sometimes required.
