PhD in Philosophy

The PhD in Philosophy program at Temple provides students with a breadth of knowledge in Philosophy while emphasizing depth of knowledge in philosophical issues of interest. In addition to two years of course work (for incoming students with no credit transfers), PhD students submit two preliminary essays in their second and third years to gain experience in research, collegial cooperation and publishing strategies. PhD students usually teach courses under the guidance of the department’s Teaching Mentoring Program. We also encourage our PhD students to pursue Temple’s Teaching in Higher Education Certificate.
