The Department of Philosophy offers three doctorate degrees.
The doctorate in Philosophy is intended for students who are interested in a continuing career in academia.
The Doctorate in Logic, Computation, and Methodology is intended for students who are interested in pursuing careers in academia or in industry.
The requirements are the same for the two degrees; the difference in name is merely to indicate a different focus of study. Students need not choose between the logic, computation, and methodology or philosophy degree until graduation.
The department has a special focus in areas of philosophy that have immediate application outside of philosophy including philosophical research that is relevant to policymakers or other academic fields.
The Doctorate in Pure and Applied Logic is intended for students who are interested in a career in mathematics (either in industry or academia). As part of this program, students will complete a master's degree in mathematics and will receive further graduate training in mathematics.
