The Department of Philosophy has particular strengths in value and social theory, epistemology and metaphysics, history of philosophy, and continental philosophy from Kant through existentialism. We maintain a deliberately pluralistic approach to philosophy, and the research in the Department draws from an unusually broad range of philosophical traditions, including contemporary, historical, continental, and analytic traditions.
UC Irvine’s philosophy graduate program is jointly administered by the Department of Philosophy in the School of Humanities and the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science in the School of Social Sciences. The graduate program is ranked among the top twenty four in the United States, and the very best in a number of subfields of philosophy (see the Philosophical Gourmet Report.) . . .
