APA Guide to Graduate Programs in Philosophy

This Guide contains information about Ph.D., M.A., and equivalent degree programs in the United States. The purpose of this volume is to provide prospective philosophy graduate students and others with basic information about the opportunities in North America for professional training in philosophy. While this volume is a useful starting point for prospective graduate students, a comprehensive inquiry should also include consultation with advisers and people directly involved with programs of interest.
