Graduate Program Information

The Department of Philosophy at Duquesne University was one of the first graduate programs in the United States to specialize in phenomenology and, more broadly, nineteenth and twentieth century continental philosophy. Our program remains committed to this tradition and focuses on post-Kantian European philosophy. We also integrate a broader emphasis on research in the history of philosophy, both as as a program focus in its own right and as the necessary background for work in later continental thought.

We offer both M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in philosophy.

New Exchange Programme with Heidelberg University for Graduate Students and Faculty

The philosophy department at Duquesne University is pleased to announce its new cooperative exchange programme with Heidelberg University. Both departments currently have students on exchange at the partner university. This new cooperation effort between the two departments was organized by Research-Alumni Ambassador Dr. Jennifer Bates of the philosophy department at Duquesne University. Heidelberg University has one of the most storied and prestigious philosophy programs and the philosophy department at Duquesne is thrilled to announce this new exchange program and to allow this great opportunity for our graduate students.

In addition to student exchange, the two schools are also working on faculty exchanges; Duquesne University is currently hosting Heidelberg's Dr. Markus Herrmann for the spring 2014 semester as he teaches a graduate seminar on Kant. Additionally, Duquesne's Dr. Lanei Rodemeyer plans to be offering courses in Heidelberg in the fall of 2014.
