About Us

Welcome to the University of Arkansas Philosophy Department. Located in Fayetteville (population 75,000) in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas, the U of A is a land-grant research institution home to more than 26,000 students. The Philosophy Department offers the BA, MA, and PhD degrees in philosophy and is composed of nine full-time faculty, approximately 25 graduate students, and approximately 75 undergraduate students.

Although the Department's bent is generally analytic, our course offerings cover a broad range and include continental philosophy, every major period in the history of western philosophy, and most of the major subfields of contemporary philosophy. Our areas of special concentration are the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of religion.
